Lawyers named for Aussie Takeovers Panel

Lawyers named for Aussie Takeovers Panel

The Minister for Revenue and Financial Services has announced the appointment of several lawyers to a prestigious government panel, including reappointment of a big four legal partner.

The Takeovers Panel is the primary forum for resolving disputes about takeovers and acts as a peer review body that regulates control transactions.

A number of lawyers have been named as three-year appointees to the 45-member panel, including Sydney Silk Ian Jackman SC of Eight Selborne Chambers, John Sheahan QC of 5 Wentworth Chambers and Herbert Smith Freehills partner Rebecca Maslen-Stannage.

King & Wood Mallesons partner Diana Nicholson is another lawyer named as a panel member. A statement released by KWM said her three year appointment recognised Ms Nicholson’s expert track record in in the areas of acquisitions and takeovers, securities industry law, fundraising and commercial law.

Karen Evans-Cullen (pictured), a legal partner at PwC, has also been reappointed to the panel.

As M&A and corporate advisory lawyer, Ms Evans-Cullen has acted in significant strategic transactions. With a career spanning 20 years, she left the Clayton Utz partnership in November 2016 to join PwC.

According to a statement released by PwC, the reappointment reflects the high regard that Ms Evans-Cullen enjoys within the field.

The new panel members were announced by Minister for Revenue and Financial Services Kelly O’Dwyer on Thursday (23 March). Each member appointment, including the president, serves on the panel part-time.
