Piper Alderman has hired Peter Nugent (pictured) as a partner for its real estate practice. He will work with Mark Askin and Warren Denny, taking the national real estate team to 13 partners.

He brings, the firm said in a statement, over 30 years of experience in property transactions and development and is “a recognised expert” on structuring property developments involving mixed uses, shared facilities and multiple stages.


Mr Nugent will be based in the firm’s Brisbane office.

The news follows the firm’s appointment of a projects partner in its Perth office in late June and its promotion of 26 lawyers to more senior roles in mid-June.

Speaking about the firm’s newest partner, Piper Alderman managing partner Tony Britten-Jones said: “Peter is a highly respected and skilled practitioner within the Queensland and national property industry. His expertise and approach strongly complement Piper Alderman’s current offerings and capabilities.

“By welcoming Peter to our team, we further reinforce our growth strategy for the national real estate team, building on the recent addition of partners John Wu in Melbourne, as well as Marcus Andrews and Paul Vergotis in Sydney.”

Mr Nugent added: “I am delighted to be joining Piper Alderman, a national law firm known for an outstanding reputation and commitment to excellence in the real estate industry. The firm’s dedication to providing exceptional legal services, combined with its collaborative and client-focused approach, aligns perfectly with my own professional values.

“I am looking forward to contributing my skills and expertise to the esteemed real estate team at Piper Alderman.”
