Firm makes third partner hire for 2017

Firm makes third partner hire for 2017

Nigel Deed

An international law firm has announced it has appointed a third Australian partner for 2017 by recruiting a M&A specialist to its Sydney team.

Ashurst has welcomed Nigel Deed (pictured) as partner within the firm’s Sydney M&A practice.

Mr Deed brings more than 13 years’ experience to his new role, and has particular expertise in advising equity participants on consortium bids and ongoing joint venture arrangements.

Mr Deed also brings to his new role significant cross-border experience, having worked in London for several years.

Ashurst global managing partner Paul Jenkins said he is pleased to welcome Mr Deed to the firm.

“It is with great pleasure we welcome Nigel to the M&A team,” Mr Jenkins said.

“We have a market leading corporate transactions team, already augmented with an outstanding infrastructure M&A practice, which will be further bolstered by Nigel joining the team.”

Ashurst corporate transactions practice group leader Mark Stanbridge echoed this sentiment, praising the professionalism Mr Deed has displayed throughout his career.

“Nigel has an outstanding reputation generally, and specifically in relation to infrastructure M&A,” he said.

“He will further enhance the offering of our leading national M&A practice, which performs in the top end of the market. We look forward to welcoming him to the team.”

This is the third partner appointment for Ashurst’s Australian M&A team in 2017, following the appointment of Melbourne-based partners John Brewster and Shane Kyriakou in early February 2017.
