Firm Description

MinterEllison is an international legal and consulting practice, headquartered in Australia and regarded as one of the Asia-Pacific's premier law firms. We think beyond the law. What sets us apart is we are a purpose led organisation that creates lasting impacts with our clients, our people and our communities. We seek to build authentic and enduring relationships and are committed to delivering innovative solutions. In a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment, our focus on building long term relationships across industries and sectors enables us to help our clients embrace opportunities and navigate market challenges.

Group Description

Our Funds Management Team operates within the broader national Capital Markets & Corporate (CMC) Business Line and has been ranked as a Band 1 practice by Chambers for over 5 years, with a reputation for excellence and innovation. The practice is led by Stuart Johnson, one of Australia's leading managed funds and capital markets lawyers and the Managing Partner of the CMC Business Line, and also includes partners Michael Lawson and Ker Wei Tiam.

The Team has a diverse client base which includes leading global fund managers, Australian and international real estate investment groups, local and international pension funds and institutional investors, the Big Four banks, private equity firms, super funds, boutique investment houses and other sophisticated local and international corporations. Many of our clients are blue chip entities listed on ASX or overseas exchanges.

In addition, Ker Wei has a particular focus on inbound M&A and regulatory work for clients in the South East Asia region and is the head of the firm's Malaysia desk.
