Knox is a former partner of Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
He has a strong competition and regulatory practice, with an energy & resources focus.
He has advised state regulators and private clients on access arrangements for gas pipelines, railways, ports and the wholesale electricity market generally, and private sector clients on infrastructure, oil, mining and electricity projects.
Andrew Cunningham, managing partner of Minter’s Perth office, said he was looking forward to welcoming Knox to the team in Perth.
"Access to existing and planned infrastructure is a key issue in Western Australia, particularly in connection with ports and rail, where access is a cornerstone to getting projects off the ground.
“Matthew's strategic skills and extensive experience across heavily regulated industries will complement our existing practice strengths in Perth,” said Cunningham.
Knox’s arrival takes the partner count in Minter’s Perth office to nine.
As a member of Minter's competition & regulatory team, Knox will work closely with partners including Paul Schoff, Katrina Groshinski, Geoff Carter, Justin Oliver, Richard Murphy and Russell Miller AM.
Knox holds a Bachelor of Laws with first class honours. He is currently the Treasurer of AMPLA (WA) and is a member of the Law Council of Australia’s Competition & Consumer Committee.
