BigLaw firm nabs general counsel

new leader

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has re-hired a general counsel as partner in its Melbourne-based real estate team.

Adrian Jones is set to return to NRF, where he began his career in 2005 and rose to be a senior associate in the real estate team in 2012.

Most recently, he was the in-house general counsel for student accommodation company Scape Australia, “assisting on all legal matters including acquisition and development of sites, management of real estate funds and negotiation of construction contracts and disputes”, the firm said.

NRF Australian managing partner Wayne Spanner said the firm was “delighted” to have Mr Jones back as a partner, and with “a mix of international and in-house experience that will be valuable to our clients and our people”.

“Our firm has recently acted on a number of significant solar and wind farm matters and Adrian’s appointment will further increase the depth of our expertise in the energy, transport and student accommodation sectors generally and help service our growing real estate practice in Melbourne.”

Mr Jones added: “Norton Rose Fulbright has had a hugely positive impact on my career and professional growth, from my start as a lawyer, then as a senior associate, and now returning as a partner. I look forward to working closely with our real estate, energy and transport clients in Australia and overseas.”
