KPMG Law has announced the appointment of a new partner, who will lead the firm’s real estate legal practice.

Nick Finlayson (pictured) has been welcomed to the role of partner, responsible for heading up KPMG’s real estate legal practice, based in the firm’s new Barangaroo office.

Mr Finlayson joins KPMG Law from Bird & Bird, where he was a partner in the firm’s international real estate group.

He brings to his new role significant expertise in advising foreign companies that have chosen to invest in Australia.

KPMG Law national partner in charge, David Morris, welcomed the appointment of Mr Finlayson, saying he will be a great value-add to the firm.

“We are delighted that Nick has joined us,” Mr Morris said.

“He will bring extensive real estate law experience to our growing team, particularly in the areas of sales and acquisitions, development, design and construction and leasing.

“Nick will work closely with the broader KPMG real estate practice and through this integrated approach we will be able to deliver an end-to-end real estate offering to our clients.”
