Gadens has strengthened its banking and finance practice with the appointment of a new partner, who joins the firm from MinterEllison.
Gadens has hired Renae Suttor as a partner in its banking and finance team. Ms Suttor joins the national law firm from MinterEllison. Prior to Minters, she spent 11 years working in Clifford Chance's London office.
Throughout her career, Ms Suttor has worked up expertise specialising in real estate development and investment finance origination and restructuring, and has extensive experience in complex, multijurisdictional lending and consensual workouts and restructurings, a statement from Gadens explained.
“Renae is a fantastic addition to our banking and finance team, further strengthening our national offering for clients,” said Gadens CEO Grant Scott-Hayward.
“Renae’s experience includes having acted for a wide variety of clients, from banks, insurers and alternative lenders, to private equity houses, asset managers and property developers. Renae has significant experience across a broad range of industry sectors, and in particular, has a notable depth of expertise in real estate, hotels and hospitality.
“As a trusted adviser to clients with a pragmatic and commercial approach, Renae will play an integral role in the ongoing, long-term growth and success of our banking and finance practice, especially in Sydney. Her appointment brings additional breadth and depth of capability for our clients and we look forward to the contribution Renae will make.”
Commenting on her decision to join Gadens, Ms Suttor said: “Being a property finance specialist, Gadens’ strength and expertise in the real estate and construction sectors was a real attraction, together with its strong national banking practice and supportive and collaborative culture”.
“I am looking forward to contributing to the future growth of Gadens’ Sydney office and the banking and finance team nationally,” she added.
