Gadens builds on Sydney practice

New banking and finance partner

The national law firm has hired a new banking and finance partner in an effort to bolster its Sydney office.

James Roland has been welcomed to Gadens’ Sydney-based banking and finance team, joining the firm from TurksLegal. Prior to TurksLegal, Mr Roland was senior legal counsel at National Australia Bank.

Throughout his career, Mr Roland has built up significant expertise across all areas of corporate restructuring, banking and insolvency law.

In announcing his appointment, Gadens chief executive officer Grant Scott-Hayward said Mr Roland was a substantial coup for the firm.

“James is a valuable addition to our national banking and finance team,” Mr Scott-Hayward said.

“With 20 years’ experience advising secured lenders in relation to managing corporate loan exposures, including refinancing and restructuring transactions, informal workouts, all forms of insolvency administration and enforcement, James will play a prominent role in helping to lead and grow our banking, insolvency and restructuring practice, particularly in the Sydney market.

Through his career, James has advised on a number of high profile and complex insolvency and restructuring matters. His expertise will complement existing capabilities across our firm and enhance our specialist offerings for clients. We are delighted to welcome James to Gadens.”

Commenting on his decision to join Gadens, Mr Roland said: “Gadens has a strong banking, insolvency and restructuring practice which is ideally positioned to provide great service and value to clients”.

“I was immediately impressed by the firm’s strategic focus and its commitment to fostering a united and collaborative culture,” he added.

“I am looking forward to contributing to the continued success of a strong and growing team.”
