Bakers poaches G+T corporate partner

Bakers poaches G+T corporate partner

Recruited new partner, Baker McKenzie, Gilbert + Tobin

Baker McKenzie has recruited a new partner in its Sydney office from Gilbert + Tobin.

Baker McKenzie recently announced that it has appointed Duncan McGrath as a partner in its Sydney office.

Mr McGrath is a specialist in debt capital markets (DCM). He was previously a partner at Gilbert + Tobin, where he established and led the firm’s DCM and securitisation practice.

His practice also includes leveraged and general finance, peer-to-peer lending, insolvency and restructuring, blockchain and smart contracts.

Mr McGrath is recognised as a leading finance lawyer in directories such as Chambers Global, the Legal 500 and IFLR1000, according to a statement from Baker McKenzie.

“Much of my work is increasingly cross-border in nature, so it made sense to join the leading global law firm with ‘one-stop shop’ capabilities,” Mr McGrath said.

“Baker McKenzie’s expertise in US debt capital markets, as well as other markets including London, Europe, the US and Asia, was a major factor in my decision to join the firm.”

Ben McLaughlin, the head of the firm’s Australian corporate group, welcomed Mr McGrath to Bakers.

“We’re excited to have Duncan join us,” he said.

“Not only will he enhance our Australian domestic capital markets practice, he’ll also add to our cross-border capability, working alongside our capital markets lawyers in other key money centres.

“In continuing Baker McKenzie’s commitment to leading the market and innovation, Duncan provides a wealth of experience in the developing corporate bond market in Australia.”
