Adelaide-based commercial law firm Kelly & Co. has hired a lawyer from Abu Dhabi to boost its construction and property practice.
International property law specialist Danny Nemer joins the firm as special counsel. He is a former Corrs Chambers Westgarth lawyer.
Nemer recently returned from Abu Dhabi where he spent the last four and a half years advising on some of the largest residential and commercial developments in the United Arab Emirates, including the construction of Capital District, Abu Dhabi’s new business city, and Yas Island, the home of the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix.
He was also involved in the Iskander Malaysia project, a Government backed development of a special economic zone in south Malaysia covering over 2,200 square kilometres.
Prior to that, Mr Nemer worked for Corrs Chambers Westgarth in Melbourne.
“My career began in corporate, commercial and property law in Adelaide,” Nemer himself said.
“It’s an exciting time for South Australia in terms of construction and development, and I’m looking forward to being a part of the local industry again and working on some major projects.”
