Colin Biggers & Paisley hires former Kemp Strang partner
National firm Colin Biggers & Paisley has welcomed a restructuring and insolvency partner from mid-tier firm Kemp Strang.
Glen Williams has been appointed as the lead partner in CBP’s Brisbane-based restructuring and insolvency team that forms part of the firm’s broader corporate and dispute resolution group.
Mr Williams’ move to CBP comes as his now former firm, Kemp Strang, is being acquired by national firm Thomson Geer.
As reported by Lawyers Weekly last week, Thomson Geer is retaining 13 of the 16 partners from Kemp Strang as part of the acquisition.
CBP said the appointment of Mr Williams reflects “the practice’s focus on building exceptional capability within their teams and to partner with their clients to deliver commercially-focused outcomes”.
Managing partner Nick Crennan said this appointment – the third such hiring in as many months – was part of a broadening of the restructuring and insolvency practice along the east coast.
“By building our strengths and capability in this area, we’re positioning ourselves for tangible growth,” he said.
“The appointment also reflects the commitment of the practice to bring people into the partnership with excellent leadership qualities.”
Mr Williams noted that he was “delighted” to join a national legal practice that has a “strong presence” in his areas of expertise.
“Colin Biggers & Paisley is well-known in the restructuring and insolvency space and they’re growing. I think a key part of this is their innovative and pragmatic approach to delivering legal services.”
