Jones Day promotes 4 to partner
Global law firm Jones Day has made four partner promotions in Australia to kick off the new year.
Pip Goldman (global disputes, Brisbane), Daniel Moloney (global disputes, Melbourne), Hemang Shah (M&A, Sydney) and Prudence Smith (antitrust & competition law, Sydney) have been admitted to the Australian partnership as part of Jones Day’s 50 partner promotions across its global offices.
“The promotion of these new partners reflects Jones Day’s ongoing commitment to developing and advancing lawyers throughout the world who have achieved the highest levels of professional accomplishment and who are devoted to advancing and protecting the interests of our clients and the institutional values of the Firm,” Stephen J. Brogan, managing partner of Jones Day said.
Ms Goldman is an experienced litigator whose practice focuses on construction and engineering disputes, particularly within the energy and resources sector and on major infrastructure projects.
Ms Goldman has experience acting in complex international and domestic arbitration, litigation, and adjudication, as well as advising on contract management and claim resolution throughout the life cycle of a project. She has acted for principals, contractors, and engineers in disputes relating to the construction of mines, ports, rail, pipelines, roads, and tunnels.
Prior to joining Jones Day in 2016, Ms Goldman acted on international arbitrations under the ICC, UNCITRAL, and SIAC rules in relation to complex construction disputes arising out of coal, iron ore, and natural gas projects.
Mr Moloney has extensive experience advising corporates, financial institutions, and individual directors and officers on complex and strategic litigation and regulatory matters.
Mr Moloney’s practice focuses on major commercial and corporate disputes, investigations and regulatory enforcement actions, class action defense, and insolvency-related investigations and litigation.
His recent experience includes advising national and global corporations and financial institutions in relation to regulatory obligations, investigations, and enforcement actions along with acting for a global corporation in relation to a dispute concerning ownership of certain IP following a series of major corporate transactions.
Mr Shah has advised on transactions with an aggregate value in excess of $100 billion. He is an accomplished corporate lawyer in public and private M&A, equity capital markets, complex business transactions, and IPOs in Australia and abroad. His clients operate in a wide variety of business sectors, including infrastructure, financial services, technology, and mining.
In 2011, Mr Shah joined ASX-listed Gloucester Coal as one of the youngest general counsels on the ASX 200. In this role he led the company through a major capital raising and associated acquisitions as well as their merger with Chinese-controlled Yancoal.
Ms Smith’s practice is focused on competition and regulatory law. Drawing on her many years as an officer within the Australian competition regulator, she is able to help clients achieve favorable outcomes in contentious matters. She advises and represents clients in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore (with locally registered Jones Day lawyers), and throughout the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
Ms Smith also advises clients on a broad range of competition law issues, including cartel and anticompetitive conduct investigations, authorisations, and notifications. She also regularly advises on significant and complex merger clearances and joint ventures, including many cross-jurisdictional transactions.
