The national law firm has welcomed a corporate specialist to its office based in Brisbane.
Commencing at Mills Oakley last month after departing Holding Redlich, John Wei brings vast experience in advising international clients in relation to the renewable energy, energy and resources, and real estate and manufacturing industries. He advises on transaction structuring, M&A, joint ventures, commercial contracts and corporate governance, as per a statement from the firm.
Further, the firm noted that Mr Wei’s primary clientele includes those from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. Throughout his career, he’s advised public listed corporates, private companies, Fortune Global 500 corporates, multinational firms and high-net-worth individuals.
“While unpredictability can be an inherent part of global diplomacy, there remains strong interest in Chinese-Australian collaboration and investment,” Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker said.
“John’s clients have continued to seek his advice during the pandemic and are keen to continue that relationship at Mills Oakley. We feel fortunate to have made such a high-calibre hire.”
Commenting on his move, John Wei said: “I am pleased to be joining a team with an excellent reputation for navigating the complexities of cross-border transactions, including transactions by state-owned enterprises.
“I am looking forward to contributing to the firm’s success.”
