Bakers bolsters Sydney practice
Baker McKenzie has expanded its Sydney scope with the hiring of two additional partners.
Ms Edgar’s new role sees her take to Bakers’ competition law practice, while Mr Gourlay’s new role sees him take to the firm’s banking and finance group.
Throughout her career, Ms Edgar has worked up expertise in competition, regulatory and consumer law, having advised on cartels, anticompetitive arrangements, merger clearance, exclusive dealing, misuse of market power, access, supply chain arrangements and the impact of competition law on various commercial activities.
Meanwhile, Mr Gourlay’s career has been specialised in cross-border leveraged finance, funds finance, real estate finance, general corporate finance and financing by alternative capital providers, advising financial institutions, sponsors and corporates across a wide range of transactions and sectors of inbound, outbound and local financings, a statement from Bakers explained.
“Both Lynsey and Alastair join our firm at a time when our clients are relying more on our transactional capabilities and when our market research tells us that a key challenge for businesses is an increasing compliance and regulatory burden.
“These appointments will continue to ensure our clients access the best possible advice in meeting whatever challenges they face [while] also seizing opportunities to grow their business.”
