The international law firm has announced that it has hired an experienced legal professional to join its Sydney office.

Squire Patton Boggs (SPB) has welcomed Michelle Asimus to its Sydney office as counsel. She joins the work after spending several years in London, working in the investment funds team of a global law firm.

Throughout her career she has advised various fund managers on the structuring, formation, promotion and operation of investment funds. Many of her clients are centred in the real estate, infrastructure, private equity and agribusiness asset classes, according to a statement from SPB.

In addition to advising fund managers on their fund formation and capital raising activities, the statement noted that Ms Asimus has assisted large institutional investors with their investments into both onshore and offshore funds and other collective investment arrangements.

“Michelle’s background and experience is very much aligned to our firm’s existing client base”, said Australian managing partner Campbell Davidson.

“Her appointment is yet another example of how we are responding to clients’ business needs.

“Michelle’s specialist expertise sits well alongside our outstanding real estate, venture capital and cross-border M&A services.”
