Hogan Lovells has hired a new corporate funds partner, who joins the firm from Gilbert + Tobin.

Hogan Lovells has confirmed James Wood will join the firm’s partnership, taking to the Sydney-based corporate team.

Mr Wood is an established corporate investment funds specialist and has specific experience in advising on private equity funds, real estate funds, energy/infrastructure funds, credit funds, secondary funds, fund of funds and other sector-focused funds together with other fund-style arrangements, such as syndicated deals, a statement from Hogan Lovells said.

“Australia is an increasingly important and attractive part of the global private capital and investment funds industry,” global head of the Hogan Lovells corporate practice David Gibbons said.

“Following the addition of Sydney corporate partners David Holland and Charles Bogle earlier this year, James’ appointment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the region and our desire to continue to grow the practice in Australia.”

Mr Wood said he is delighted to be joining the corporate practice at Hogan Lovells. 

“The firm’s integrated nature provides the ideal platform for me to further develop my practice and service my clients,” he added.
