Law firm Gadens yesterday announced the appointment of banking and finance practitioner Tim Lipscombe as partner, effective 1 June.
Mr Lipscombe joins the firm from Ashurst, where he was a banking partner for nine years with experience in syndicated, club and bilateral corporate finance and bank lending; real estate, property and construction finance; leveraged and acquisition finance and asset and equipment finance and leasing.
Gadens Sydney chief executive Ian Dardis said the appointment strongly aligns with the firm’s longstanding commitment to its banking relationships.
“We are privileged to be entrusted to act for Australia’s most prominent banks and financial institutions,” Mr Dardis said.
“Tim is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s leading banking and finance lawyers and is the ideal fit for our team,” he said.
“At the heart of our practice is a focus on continually providing exceptional service to our clients in a commercial, pragmatic, innovative and cost-efficient way.”
Mr Lipscombe said he will have the opportunity to engage in high quality banking and finance work for an enviable group of first-tier clients.
“I have been particularly drawn to Gadens culture, the collegiality of the banking team and the cross practice co-operation between the banking, property, corporate, insolvency and tax teams,” he said.
