Global firm appoints partner to Perth real estate team
A global firm has appointed a new partner to its Perth office, bringing the total number in its real estate team up to six.
Squire Patton Boggs announced former Clayton Utz partner Mary Pringle would work alongside partners Mark Palermo, Margie Tannock and Michael Swift.
Squire’s Australian managing partner, Campbell Davidson, said Ms Pringle “enables us to continue to deliver bespoke commercial advice to our clients in the development, investment, finance and construction industries”.
“Our Asian desk has never been busier, with much of the foreign investment focused on real estate transactions,” Mr Davidson said.
Ms Pringle has more than 20 years’ experience in real estate law and is known for her strong technical expertise, commerciality, responsiveness and negotiation skills.
During her time in Sydney and Perth, Ms Pringle handled development projects, acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures and commercial leasing.
Her career highlights include undertaking real estate work for the revitalisation of the iconic Scarborough Beach foreshore and advising on the $750 million redevelopment of Garden City Shopping Centre.
Ms Pringle said: “I am delighted to be joining the Squire team with the opportunity to assist clients locally, nationally and internationally. Such an exciting time to grow the real estate business and I can’t wait to contribute to that growth.”
