Tuanh Nguyen (pictured) has joined NRF’s corporate merger and acquisition team in Melbourne, having come over from PwC Australia, where she served as a director from 2017.

Her appointment follows the hiring of new partners Ben Bradstreet from King & Wood Mallesons in late March and also Michael O’Neill and Sonja Marsic in mid-March, who joined from PwC and Australian Government Solicitor, respectively.

Ms Nguyen brings a history of advising international and Australian clients on corporate transactions involving M&A and ECM deals, the firm said in a statement, and she is experienced in advising companies on fundraising transactions (including IPOs, secondary capital raising processes and start-up fundraisings) and private and public M&A deals (including takeovers, schemes, private equity transactions and corporate restructuring).


She also joins the firm in a diversity, equity and inclusion advisory role, bringing her experience as a Victorian branch committee member of the Asian Australian Lawyers Association and board member and company secretary of the Vietnamese Museum Australia.

Her diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) advisory and consulting work, NRF said, helps organisations to enhance their DEI outcomes by driving change through leadership and organisational capability upskilling, workplace culture reviews, strategy development, and governance and policy reviews.

Speaking about the appointment, NRF chief executive partner Alison Deitz said: “We are delighted to welcome Tuanh Nguyen, our fourth new partner announced in a month and second for the national corporate M&A team.

“Tuanh brings rich and diverse experience to the firm, as both a seasoned advisor to M&A and ECM clients and as a recognised authority on a range of DEI and ESG issues.”

NRF corporate team leader Bryan Pointon added: “Tuanh’s strong international and domestic experience as an advisor on corporate and fundraising transactions across a range of our priority industries will benefit our Australian and foreign client base.

“Together with Michael, she adds further quality and depth to our Melbourne partnership and the national corporate M&A team.”

And Ms Nguyen noted: “I was attracted to Norton Rose Fulbright not only because of the significant M&A and ECM work the firm does for Australian and international dealmakers, but also for its commitment to being at the forefront of ESG and DEI issues.

“I look forward to helping to advise the firm’s clients across the diverse mix of opportunities and risks they manage as they search for sustainable growth.”
