Boutique firm nabs PwC partner
A boutique law firm with offices in Perth and Sydney has revealed the appointment of a new corporate partner, who joins from PwC.
Paul Sartori (pictured below) has departed the big four accounting firm to take up a new partner position at Allion Partner’s Perth practice.
Collectively, Mr Sartori brings to his new role 20 years’ experience, advising on public and private mergers and acquisitions, as well as equity capital markets, shareholder investor arrangements and general corporate advisory matters.
At PwC, Mr Sartori established and led the Perth legal team for five years. Prior to this, he held a special counsel position at Ashurst’s Perth office, after leaving a partner position in the London office of global law firm, Berwin Leighton Paisner.
Michael Swift, Allion partner in charge, Perth, has welcomed Mr Sartori to the firm, saying he will be a valuable asset to the team.
“We are excited Paul has agreed to join Allion,” Mr Swift said.
“His highly regarded reputation and substantial local and international experience, together with his recent background of working in a multidisciplinary practice providing end-to-end client services, adds significant strength to our firm.”
Speaking about his new role, Mr Sartori said the “breadth and depth of Allion’s practice areas” was one of the main drawcards in joining the firm.
“[I’m] looking forward to the opportunity Allion provides with flexible service and fee structure arrangements to deliver tailored solutions for clients,” he added.
