Aus firm announces FY appointments

Aus firm announces FY appointments


McCullough Robertson has welcomed two new partners, four special counsel and two senior associates to mark the start of the new financial year.

Aaron Dahl and Peter Williams have joined the Australian firm’s partnership, bringing with them expertise in the corporate and commercial practice.

Mr Dahl kicked off his legal career with McCullough Robertson in 2006 as part of the firm’s graduate program. Since then, he has rotated through litigation and dispute resolution and aged care before settling on corporate advisory, according to a statement from the firm.

He specialises in capital raisings, mergers and acquisitions, business and share sales and ASX listings to public, private and non-profit clients.

Mr Williams also launched his legal career with McCullough Robertson as a graduate, commencing his role in 2008.

According to the firm’s statement, between 2011 and 2015 Mr Williams spent time at Thiess and CMS Cameron McKenna in London before returning to McCullough Robertson as a senior associate in the commercial team.

Since then he has worked up expertise in advising on unregulated mergers and acquisitions, establishment and operation of joint ventures, infrastructure arrangements and long-term operating contracts.

“Both have grown their careers with us and their appointments are a ready acknowledgement of their significant contribution to the firm over the years,” said McCullough Robertson chairman of partners Dominic McGann.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome them to the partnership.”

The firm also revealed the promotions of Lydia Daly, Frances Fredriksen, Lyndon Garbutt and Melinda Peters, who have taken to their new special counsel roles.

It also promoted Jeremy Perier and Ann Watson to senior associate positions.

Commenting on the move, Mr McGann said the eight appointments reflect the firm’s commitment to “unlocking opportunities for our clients and our people, and aligning our technical and industry expertise to capitalise on emerging markets and opportunities”.
