Henry Davis York has announced it will soon open a Brisbane office in a bid to consolidate its growing profile in the region.
The firm is currently acting as the key advisor on some of Australia's largest insolvencies on the ground in Brisbane, including ABC Learning Centres and Octaviar.
A spokesperson from the firm confirmed with Lawyers Weekly today that the firm has secured space in Brisbane and is expecting to officially open the new office in February.
Two partners, John Evans and Leonard McCarthy, will relocate from Sydney to establish the office. Both are currently advising the receivers of ABC Learning Centres and both have significant experience in restructuring and insolvency law.
"We are establishing our office in Brisbane in response to the needs and requests from our clients to provide on-the-ground advice in insolvency, banking disputes and restructuring work," said HDY managing partner Sharon Cook.
"The focus of our Brisbane office will be on these core service areas for which we have a strong market reputation."
