Within: Corporate and M&A

Piper Alderman’s ‘excellent’ team has seen significant growth due to its merger with boutique corporate firm Norton Gledhill, adding Alasdair McLean, Bruce Cameron, James Macdonald, Michael Coker and Hugh Scales as well as consultant David Burridge to the practice. It has been further bolstered by a number of lateral hires and internal promotions; the team, which is jointly led by James Dickson and Macdonald, now counts 28 partners. The latter displays ‘an amazing work ethic’, ‘is calm under pressure and is extremely competent’; he recently assisted the AFL Players’ Association with establishing its injury and hardship fund. Southern Cross Equity Group instructed the team on the sale of Axiom Islington North’s 50% interest in the Churchill Centre North shopping centre. The team is ‘pragmatic and uses astute business judgement to get the deal done’. Michael Bacina 
leads the growing cryptocurrency practice.
