Esteban Gomez is the firm’s newest principal, bringing over two decades of private practice and in-house experience in corporate transactions and advisory.

He is admitted to practice in Queensland and is also a solicitor in England and Wales (non-practising) and an attorney in the USA (New York) (non-practising), and he has sought-after experience in complex cross-border transactions.

 
 

Macpherson Kelley national managing principal Grant Guenther said: “Esteban will add to our strength in unregulated M&A for predominantly medium and large private organisations. In addition to this, he will give us skills in regulated transactions and capital raising — from venture capital and start-ups through to mature businesses.”

“Esteban is known throughout the profession for his technical excellence, collaborative leadership and commercial approach to managing challenging work on tight timelines. I have no doubt he will fit seamlessly into our high-performing Brisbane office.”

Elsewhere, the firm has hired Jane Sun as a special counsel, who brings over 20 years of experience advising Chinese business enterprises on their global investment projects and specialises in cross-border mergers and acquisitions.

Macpherson Kelley special counsel Linda Huan said: “I’ve seen Jane walk clients through the complexities of a commercial venture firsthand, and her patience and drive will be a massive drawcard for our client base.”

Ms Sun and Ms Huan will serve as co-heads of the firm’s China group.

“Jane goes the extra mile to ensure her clients’ success, and our team is thrilled to work with someone that aligns so well with our expertise and values,” Ms Huan noted.
