Julian is a member of the Corporate and Commercial team in Sydney and advises private equity firms, founders and the Australian arms of global corporations and funds. His practice spans private and public M&A, shareholder and joint venture arrangements, corporate restructures, foreign investment in Australia and commercial trading terms.

Their appointments continue the growth of the Maddocks partnership, with Rosalie Byrne, Meaghan Bare, Ilan Kraus and Cameron Thomson joining the Maddocks partnership in recent months.

Maddocks Chairman Mark Henry congratulated the four new partners on reaching this significant career milestone.

‘Adam, Joshua, Michael and Julian have displayed the characteristics and qualities that we value most in our people,’ Mark said.
