McNair (pictured) was head of the Asia-Pacific finance & projects group at DLA, and Holland was head of the firm’s banking & finance (Asia-Pacific) group.

The duo will join G+T’s national banking & finance practice in Melbourne; they also bring with them special counsel Luke Westmore.


McNair is an energy, mining & resources and infrastructure partner whose work extends across Australia, Asia and Africa.

Holland is a banking & project finance partner with extensive experience in project and infrastructure finance, PPPs, energy & resources and international finance.

Holland, who was replaced as DLA’s Australia managing partner in January, was also previously a senior partner at King & Wood Mallesons.

Commenting on the appointments, G+T’s managing partner Danny Gilbert said: “Tony, Damian and Luke are very accomplished lawyers who will bolster our presence in Melbourne and make a valuable contribution to the continued growth of our banking & finance capacity.”
