Mr Cohen has 20 years of experience as a specialist property lawyer, the firm said, and “advises Australian and international owners and tenants of property across a range of projects including commercial/industrial leasing, sales and acquisitions and all other aspects of property law”.

“Richard acts for a number of high-profile corporate occupiers, as well as state and federal government authorities. He also acts for professional service firms, manufacturers, developers and ASX-listed companies,” the firm said.

Mills CEO John Nerurker said that the firm was responding to strong market demand: “Mills Oakley already has one of the largest real estate teams in the market and we are pleased to be acting for a number of new clients for the first time this year,” he said.

“To attract a candidate of Richard’s profile and calibre is particularly timely given the firm’s growth in this area.”

Mr Cohen said that he was pleased to have found a strong cultural fit at Mills Oakley: “I have known and respected the Mills Oakley real estate team for many years, and this was a major factor in my move,” he said.

“I also feel that Mills Oakley will be a great fit for the type and scale of clients I represent.”

Mr Cohen commenced with the firm earlier this month.
