SA leaves global for Melbourne-based firm

A senior associate at a global firm has joined a smaller Melbourne-based outfit.

Russell Kennedy Lawyers recently announced that Rory Maguire has joined its M&A team in Melbourne as a special counsel.

Mr Maguire was previously a senior associate at Herbert Smith Freehills, where he spent 11 years in the corporate/M&A team.

His experience includes public takeovers and schemes of arrangement, negotiated acquisitions and divestments, shareholder and joint venture arrangements, corporate fundraising and restructures, regulatory and governance matters and general corporate/commercial law, according to a statement from Russell Kennedy.

Rohan Harris, M&A practice group leader at Russell Kennedy, said Mr Maguire’s expertise would strengthen the firm’s M&A and capital raising capabilities.

“Rory is a great addition to our team,” Mr Harris said.

“He brings with him a great reputation and first-rate expertise. His appointment further strengthens our M&A and corporate advisory offering and commitment to delivering the best outcomes for our clients.”

Managing director Paul Gleeson said Mr Maguire’s appointment was in line with the firm’s growth strategy.

“We continue to develop our pipeline of talent,” he said.

“Rory’s appointment, in addition to that of construction special counsel Kyle Gillan earlier in the year, further demonstrates our commitment to recruiting top-calibre talent to underpin Russell Kennedy’s future growth strategy.”

Russell Kennedy has offices in Melbourne, Geelong and Canberra.
