“Gadens’ recent growth and determination to re-build and re-focus in the Sydney market presented an exciting offering for me. This is a team that is already known for its experience working on very significant disputes, particularly for regulators and in markets defined by regulators, so my decision to join the team was driven by an alignment of my experience with a team who has a strong market reputation, on which we can build together”.
