The national law firm has announced Ben Shaw (pictured) has rejoined its Brisbane office as a partner, following a two-year period spent working as a senior associate at Henry Davis York. Prior to HDY, Mr Shaw practised at DibbsBarker for more than six years until 2015.
Mr Shaw brings to his new partner role significant experience in advising on dispute resolution and litigation in the banking, financial services and insolvency industries.
Throughout his career, he has represented Australia’s big four banks as well as major regional banks and financial institutions. He has also acted for many of Australia’s leading insolvency practitioners and large commercial clients on various insolvency issues, including cross-border matters, according to a statement from DibbsBarker.
“Ben’s appointment rounds out a continued period of strategic investment in our banking, insolvency and disputes team,” said DibbsBarker managing partner Stephen Purcell.
“Within the past year we have welcomed front-end banking and finance partner Jason Morris in Melbourne, and bolstered our restructuring and insolvency offering across all offices with the arrival of John Stragalinos and Joanne Hardwick in Melbourne, Wendy Jacobs and her team in Sydney, and now Ben’s return to our Brisbane office.
“Ben also has excellent experience working with numerous banks, and he shares our dedication to fostering strong relationships and providing outstanding service to our valued clients. We are pleased that Ben has rejoined the firm.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Shaw said: “I previously enjoyed many great years in DibbsBarker’s banking, insolvency and disputes team and am delighted to return as a partner”.
“DibbsBarker is a strong firm with deep connections in the banking and finance industry, and with the scale and reach to deliver excellence while remaining adaptable to different clients’ needs,” he said.
