Jeremy Murnain has rejoined Dentons as special counsel in the firm’s banking and finance practice, based in the New South Wales capital.
Previously, Mr Murnain was with Herbert Smith Freehills, also based in Sydney, and Baker & McKenzie, based in London.
Mr Murnain brings 15 years’ experience to his new role, working across multiple jurisdictions on matters concerning banking and finance, property and construction, leveraged acquisitions and corporate finance.
Throughout his career, Mr Murnain has acted on a wide range of syndicated, club and bilateral financings in Australia, England, the US, Sweden, Germany, Brazil, Ukraine and PNG, and his clients rely on him to efficiently document complex transactions, from structuring through to completion, according to a statement from Dentons.
Dentons chief executive officer, Australia, Ian Dardis, congratulated Mr Murnain on his new role with the firm.
“Jeremy’s responsiveness, efficiency and detailed approach are appreciated by both colleagues and clients,” Mr Dardis said.
“His significant cross-border experience means that he is well-placed to support both local and international clients, and his return will further enhance Dentons’ leading banking and finance practice.”
Commenting on his decision to rejoin Dentons, Mr Murnain noted that the move was based on his desire to work for a global firm that was “doing things differently”.
“The legal market is competitive in Australia and Dentons’ ability to combine unparalleled global reach with efficient, first-class legal advice enables it to truly differentiate itself in the market,” he said.
“It is an exciting time to be a part of Dentons in Sydney – and to be working alongside so many talented lawyers.”
