Mr Steele brings with him vast expertise in acting for both private and public sector clients across a range of sectors. His clientele includes fund managers, financial institutions, restructuring and insolvency practitioners, developers, and government departments.
Clayton Utz national real estate practice group leader, Nikki Robinson, described Mr Steele as a perfect fit for the team, adding that his experience will “support and enhance the real estate team’s national Tier 1 ranking and demonstrate the ongoing strength of Clayton Utz in the commercial property sector”.
“I’ve worked across from Andrew numerous times over the past decade and know him to be a strong negotiator, technically excellent, and a consummate professional,” Ms Robinson said.
“However, the thing that makes this move such an important one is that in Andrew we have found someone who values integrity, collegiality and collaboration as much as we do.
“This not only leads to the best outcomes for our clients, but also for our collective teams — we’re all looking forward to working with Andrew and his team.”
