Graeme Tucker has been welcomed to Clayton Utz’s partnership in a role which will see him based in the firm’s Sydney office.
Mr Tucker’s area of expertise ranges across asset-based lending, trade and asset finance, corporate and acquisition finance, debt restructuring and debt and portfolio trading transactions, according to Clayton Utz.
During his time in law, he has acted for many large financial services entities and companies and has particular expertise in the Personal Property Securities Act.
Speaking on his new role, Mr Tucker said he was attracted to the firm’s reputation for a collaborative, team-based approach to working with clients, and its strong client service focus.
“It is particularly attractive to be a part of the cross-practice collaboration between the national Clayton Utz banking and financial services practice, restructuring and insolvency practice and corporate/M&A practice,” Mr Tucker said.
Meanwhile, Clayton Utz deputy CEP - clients and markets and banking and financial services national practice group head, Bruce Cooper, said Mr Tucker’s appointment meant Clayton Utz’s clients “would have access to an even broader range of specialist finance law services”.
