Ashurst expands restructuring practice with new partner
International law firm Ashurst has rehired a new partner in its restructuring and special situations group in Melbourne.
“Alinta has strong commercial instincts and her expertise in large, complex cross-border restructuring matters will add bench strength to our practice in Australia and regionally,” Ashurst’s head of APAC restructuring and special situations group James Marshall said.
“As the Australian restructuring and insolvency market continues to evolve as the UK and Europe have, her strong track record and market knowledge will be a valuable asset to the team.”
Ms Kemeny has broad experience across corporate restructuring, refinancing, formal insolvency and special situations work specialising in complex multi-jurisdictional financial restructurings.
“We are delighted to be welcoming Alinta,” Melbourne office managing partner, Ross McClymont added.
“The Melbourne market is a key Australian hub for fund, finance superannuation and corporate clients and with the addition of Alinta our practice will be furthered strengthened to continue to deliver a first-class service.”
She has advised a variety of stakeholders including banks, funds and debtors across a wide range of sectors. Notable transactions include the restructuring of Syncreon Group Holdings and Ambac Assurance.
“Ashurst has a market-leading restructuring practice and so I am excited to be returning to Melbourne,” Ms Kemeny said on her decision to join Ashurst.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my international expertise home to Australia, working closely with colleagues across Ashurst’s offices globally to even further develop the firm’s offering,” she said.
