K&L Gates strengthens investment management practice
The Sydney office of law firm K&L Gates has added Liz Gray as a partner in its investment management practice.
Gray (pictured) arrives at K&L Gates from Henry Davis York, joined by senior associates Matthew Watts and Lisa Lautier and lawyer Edward Vassie.
Gray assists clients in the financial services industry with investment fund transactions, financial services regulatory projects, and new product development. She advises both on and offshore fund managers regarding matters such as business and product establishment and structuring, M&A and joint venture arrangements, and the application of financial services law.
Nick Nichola, K&L Gates’ managing partner, Australia, says: “Australia is a global leader in funds management, with the industry valued at more than a trillion dollars. Having previously worked with many of the major fund managers in Australia, Liz possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience and will add to our already strong investment management capabilities both in Australia and the Asia Pacific region more broadly.”
Gray is the second investment management partner to join K&L Gates’ Asia practice in 2014, with the firm also having added Greg Heaton in January as a partner in its Hong Kong office.
K&L Gates is the largest fully integrated US-based law firm in the Asia Pacific region, serving clients through 11 offices and 400 lawyers across Asia and Australia.
