Salvos Legal recruits leading financial services lawyer

Salvos Legal recruits leading financial services lawyer


Salvos Legal has announced the appointment of a new special counsel, who joins from Henry Davis York.

Stephen Etkind (pictured below) has joined Salvos Legal, a unique commercial law firm that uses its profits to fund the free legal services offered by Salvos Legal Humanitarian.

According to a statement from Salvos Legal, Mr Etkind is an internationally recognised investment and financial services lawyers and is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s best by Chambers Asia-Pacific, Best Lawyers and the International Bar Association.

Mr Etkind has over 30 years’ experience advising institutional and retail investment funds, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and infrastructure funds. He has also advised on financial and investment products, structuring and corporate governance.

Mr Etkind was previously a partner at Henry Davis York, which recently shed 25 staff in Sydney before announcing that its merger with global firm Norton Rose Fulbright was back on.

Before joining HDY, he spent over 10 years as a partner at MinterEllison, where he led the financial services group and held the role of pro bono partner.

“We are absolutely delighted that Stephen has joined Salvos Legal,” said managing partner Luke Geary.

“To have a lawyer of Stephen’s calibre on our team will be an asset for our major institutional clients, particularly those in the financial services and social impact investment sectors.

“Stephen has a passion for making a difference and will increase the breadth of our expertise, and help us to deliver on our purpose which is to be a first-class legal service for both commercial and humanitarian clients.”

Salvos Legal is a finalist in three categories in this year’s Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards.
