David Stammers (pictured) has joined Addisons, bringing a quarter of a century of private equity experience to the Sydney-based law firm.

He is, Addisons said in a statement, “widely regarded” as a leading private equity practitioner across the country.

The news follows the firm’s addition of a partner from Mills Oakley in late August, promotion of a corporate lawyer to partner in mid-July, and its hiring of a partner and senior associate from boutique firm Watson Mangioni in early June.


Speaking about the hire, Addisons managing partner Kieren Parker said: “We are thrilled David has joined our partnership.

“David has an exceptional reputation for M&A and private equity, both in Australia and internationally, and his appointment will significantly bolster our nine-partner strong corporate team.

“As an independent firm with a full-service offering, Addisons has been increasing our share of inbound corporate work in recent times. David’s international focus demonstrates our desire and commitment to being a trusted local adviser to foreign clients and international firms.

“One of David’s strengths is his ability to build longstanding relationships with his clients. He will be a great fit.”

Mr Stammers added: “I am delighted to have joined the corporate team at Addisons.

“They are a strong and growing team with an excellent reputation. I look forward to assisting in the continued development of their private equity practice and the M&A practice more generally.”
