Former Allens managing partner joins Corrs
Monday, 3 June 2013
Corrs Chambers Westgarth has announced the appointment of Allens corporate/ M&A partner Robert Clarke. Clarke brings a depth of experience in the Singapore and South East Asian markets and has been both a partner and managing partner of the Allens Singapore office for several years. He relocated to the Allens Melbourne office in 2011.
Corrs CEO John Denton said the new appointment was a major coup for the firm. “Robert is a good fit for Corrs which is focused on developing and retaining only the highest calibre candidates for its partnership,” Denton said.
Clarke was the lead partner on the recent A$2.3billion acquisition of the Sydney Desalination Plant for a consortium comprising Australian based Hastings Funds Management and Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, and has been active across a range of domestic and international infrastructure and transport assets since returning to Melbourne.
