Minters hires new M&A partner

Minters hires new M&A partner

Paul Shillington

MinterEllison has announced that it has bolstered its M&A practice by appointing a new Perth-based partner.

The international firm has announced it has hired Paul Shillington (pictured), who brings with him more than 20 years’ experience in legal, commercial and executive leadership roles.

Throughout his career, Mr Shillington has gained expertise in the energy and infrastructure sectors, particularly oil, gas, renewables and construction.

According to a statement from Minters, Mr Shillington’s broad transactional and management experience encompasses all facets of business internationally, including strategy, risk management, operations, joint ventures, M&A, equity and debt capital financing, dispute management and resolution, and regulatory and compliance matters.

He first began his legal career at Freehills, now Hebert Smith Freehills. Following this, he established an energy-focused legal consulting business in Paris in 2008.

Most recently, Mr Shillington held the roles of chief legal officer and corporate secretary at Geneva-based Oryx Petroleum Corporation Limited.

“Paul has unique transactional and executive management expertise across all facets of business internationally. There are important synergies between his background and experience, our practice in Western Australia, and the firm's advisory services to the energy and resources sector,” said Adam Handley, MinterEllison management partner – Western Australia.

“He will lead the ongoing development of our oil and gas strategy in Western Australia and work closely with our Energy and Resources group across Australia and Asia. Paul will also play an active role in the development of the oil and gas stream of MinterEllison's China Foreign Direct Investment practice.”

Mr Handley noted that Mr Shillington’s arrival continues MinterEllison’s targeted expansion in Western Australia.

“In the past year alone we added three additional new partners in Perth – in human resources/industrial relations and insurance and corporate risk,” he said.

“Paul's admission takes us to 15 partners in Western Australia, now making us one of the largest full service commercial firms operating in the state.”
