Leading international law firm Clifford Chance is strengthening its finance practice with the addition of partner Richard Gordon on 1 September.

Richard is a market-leading practitioner and has extensive experience in a broad range of transactions across Australia including acquisition finance, project and infrastructure finance, real estate finance and funds.

‘Richard is an excellent addition to our team. Not only does he have wide general banking and finance expertise, but he also has excellent experience in projects and infrastructure.

‘His skills complement our Australian and wider Asia Pacific teams very well and will greatly enhance our offering to clients,’ said Mark Pistilli, Clifford Chance’s managing partner in Sydney.

Richard will work closely with partner Caroline Jury, head of finance in Sydney, as well as focus on project and infrastructure work with partners Philip Sealey in Perth and Nicholas Wong, global co-head of the worldwide projects group, in Singapore.
