Karen Evans-Cullen (pictured) was one of five new appointments to the Federal Government’s Takeovers Panel announced yesterday (16 April).

The M&A specialist has been a lawyer at Clutz for more than 20 years. She has acted on a range of deals, including Spotless Group Limited’s $720 million acquisition by Pacific Equity Partners and Singapore Exchange Limited's proposed $16 billion merger with ASX Ltd.


Two Sydney silks have also been appointed to the Panel: Ian Jackman SC from Eight Selborne and John Sheahan QC from 5 Wentworth.

The Panel is a peer review body and the primary forum for resolving disputes about a takeover bid until the bid period has ended. It consists of 36 members appointed from Australia’s takeovers and business communities.

Herbert Smith Freehills partner Fiona Gardiner-Hill was a member of the Panel until her death earlier this year.
