Squire Sanders set to launch in Sydney following Allens hire
Squire Sanders is set to launch in Sydney next month after hiring M&A specialist Campbell Davidson, formerly of of Allens, to lead the Australian practice. The Sydney office is the firm’s second branch in Australia, having opened in Perth in August.
Davidson will be supported by two of counsel - intellectual property and technology lawyer Richard Pascoe from Sydney law firm Truman Hoyle, and tax specialist Louise Boyce from DLA Piper - and Anna Elliott, a senior associate from Holding Redlich.
"We've done a lot in the Asia-Pacific region over the last 12 to 15 months," said James Maiwurm, the firm's global chair and CEO. "We're looking for a very strong but modest presence in Sydney that focuses both on Australia and the Southeast Asia region. I would say 25 [new people will be hired] over the next three or four years. I think we will be able to attract some very good people."
