With a background in-house and as an investment banker, I understand where clients are coming from. Legal advice not only needs to be technically correct, it needs to be useful.


I focus on funds management and mergers & acquisitions. I assist clients who are seeking to establish, acquire, restructure or divest funds, businesses or investments, including both negotiated and hostile transactions.

 

In advising my clients, I bring background experience gained from working in private legal practice, as an in-house counsel and as an investment banker. This range of experience means that I have insight into the commercial drivers and practical considerations driving businesses and transactions, particularly those in the funds management sector, and how the most practical and commercially-focused advice can make a very real difference.
 

I have assisted clients on cross-border public company and listed fund takeovers, schemes of arrangement, capital raisings and debt financing, the structuring, establishment and management of domestic and international real estate and debt funds and the acquisition and operation of funds management businesses.
 

Prior to joining Addisons in 2010, I had worked for Macquarie Bank in both legal and commercial roles, and prior to that I was a member of the Mergers & Acquisitions group at Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills), an international law firm.

 

 

 

"Daniel, Kieren and the team from Addisons have done an outstanding job on Anacacia's investment in LEDified Lighting Corporation. We at Anacacia have found them to be commercial and an absolute pleasure to deal with."
