Herbert Smith Freehills Welcomes M&A Partner Ian Williams.

3 February, 2015


M&A lawyer Ian Williams has started his new role as a partner within Herbert Smith Freehills’ Corporate M&A practice. He is based in the firm’s Brisbane office. Ian has over 20 years’ experience specialising in M&A and joint ventures in the energy, resources, infrastructure and industrial sectors. His experience includes advising a range of Asia-based clients.


Herbert Smith Freehills Global Head of Corporate, Mike Ferraro said: “We are very pleased to welcome Ian to our partnership. His considerable expertise and strong relationships with Japanese and Korean organisations in particular will bolster our client offering in Asia Pacific and build upon the firm’s significant cross-border capabilities in the region.”


“We expect to see strong M&A activity across the Asia Pacific region in 2015, with cross border deals set to increase as a result of Australia’s new Free Trade Agreements with Japan, Korea and China. The falling Australian dollar and lower commodity prices will also drive M&A activity and increase foreign investment into Australia.”
