New partner powers up institutional investment team
The corporate and finance team of a leading independent Aussie law firm has welcomed the appointment of an ex-NRF heavyweight.
The addition of Fadi Khoury (pictured) to the Sydney office of Corrs Chambers Westgarth has been described by the firm as an enhancement to its talent ranks. The new partner joins the corporate and finance practice of Corrs, after almost 11 years in the Norton Rose Fulbright partnership.
Mr Khoury played a key role for Defence Housing Australia to establish its investment arm and subsequent Australian property fund offering.
Corrs CEO John Denton said that Mr Khoury was a recognised trusted advisor, particularly in the area of fund structuring. He added that Mr Khoury enjoyed the high regard of clients across different asset classes with more than 20 years in practice.
“Fadi is also widely respected for providing crucial commercial guidance to banks, fund managers, fintech players and other financial services organisations here and abroad,” Mr Denton said.
A statement from Corrs listed some of Mr Khoury’s professional achievements, including recognition as a leading lawyer in investment funds, fund management and financial services regulatory affairs by both Chambers and the Best Lawyers peer-based review.
“Some highlights include advising global investment firms Invesco and KKR on their innovative credit based investment offerings into the Australian investor market. He designed the agricultural investment fund run by Laguna Bay Pastoral Company, which invests on behalf of major US and Australian institutions,” the firm said.
According to the firm, Mr Khoury is also a lecturer and member of the Accreditation Board of the Australian Financial Markets Association.
