Commercial firm boasts positive year

Commercial firm boasts positive year


A commercial law firm operating out of Brisbane and Perth has said it is looking to further strengthen its practitioner-client partnerships in 2017 after posting a “successful year in M&A and capital markets”.

HopgoodGanim Lawyers said 2017 will be a year of increased activity in the fintech, mining and M&A sectors across the country.

Corporate partner and head of the firm’s Perth office, Robyn Ferguson, said HopgoodGanim will look to increase its teams in these areas and strengthen its focus on “authentic” practitioner-client relationships.

This comes after the firm’s corporate advisory and governance practice posted a big year advising clients across a diverse range of industries in 2016.

Ms Ferguson said the highlights included advising Westgold Resources Limited on its $500 million ASX listing, Michael Hill International on its $400 million ASX listing, Aeries Resources Limited on its US$130 million refinancing, and Metals X Limited on its $100 million takeover bid for Aditya Birla Minerals and $115 million placement and share purchase plan.

Ms Ferguson also commended the firm for advising USA-based fintech start-up ChimpChange Limited on its $15 million IPO and listing on the ASX, as well as advising Interquip Pty Ltd on its $8 million partial sale to MACA Limited and Sealanes Group on its sale to Quadrant Private Equity.

“We are tremendously proud of these results and are grateful for the continued support of our clients,” Ms Ferguson said.

“Our teams on both sides of the country believe that success is only achieved through solid and authentic partnerships between practitioner and client, and we look forward to strengthening these relationships as we move into 2017.”
