K&L Gates Enhances Finance Team with Sydney Partner Appointment

30 August 2017

Sydney - Global law firm K&L Gates LLP continues to strengthen its finance team with the appointment of Richard Gray as a partner in the Sydney office. Gray joins the firm from HWL Ebsworth.

Gray has more than 30 years of experience working as a finance lawyer in Australia, with a particular focus in various forms of secured and unsecured financings, including project and infrastructure finance, structured financings of property assets, securitization, syndication, and tax-based and cross-border structures. He also advises on lending, swaps, major work-outs, and European, United States, and domestic note issues and programs.

He counsels lenders, borrowers, and arrangers across a broad range of sectors, including property, government, resources, infrastructure, energy, transport, innovation, funds management, hotels, and finance.

Gray stated: “One of my main attractions to K&L Gates was the firm’s fully integrated global platform, which will help me deliver new sources of financing to clients. I’m excited by the opportunity to help my colleagues further build K&L Gates’ finance offering.”

“Richard’s addition, along with the recent appointment of special counsel Eric Boone, broadens and diversifies K&L Gates’ banking and finance capabilities in Australia and around the globe,” said Nick Nichola, K&L Gates’ Managing Partner, Australia. “Their front-end finance experience and knowledge nicely complement our existing finance capabilities and will provide benefit to clients regardless of their business life-cycle stage. We are excited to welcome Richard to the firm.”

Gray’s arrival follows the earlier additions of restructuring and insolvency partner James Wright (Boston); banking and asset finance partners Mounir Letayf (Paris) and Michael Cuda (Dallas); and aviation finance partners Philip Perrotta and Sidanth Rajagopal (London).

K&L Gates is a fully integrated global law firm with lawyers located across five continents. The firm represents leading multinational corporations, growth and middle-market companies, capital markets participants and entrepreneurs in every major industry group as well as public sector entities, educational institutions, philanthropic organizations and individuals.
