“It is one of Western Australia’s leading firms which has been at the centre of that State’s resources boom for more than 25 years.

“It currently acts for more than 100 publicly-listed Australian and international companies.

Following the integration, Gilbert + Tobin will have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth and more than 60 partners.

Blakiston & Crabb has seven partners and 24 lawyers across Energy and Resources, M&A, corporate governance and litigation working in Australia, China and Africa.

Blakiston & Crabb’s managing partner Michael Blakiston said he and his colleagues were delighted to join Gilbert + Tobin.

“Our skills, expertise and styles complement each other and we are pleased to formalise our collaboration by becoming one firm.

“The addition of Gilbert + Tobin’s expertise in Corporate Advisory, M&A and litigation will help round out the offering to our existing clients,” he said.

Over the past 18 months, Gilbert + Tobin has expanded from a single Sydney based office to a national firm, reflecting the growing demand for high quality legal services.
