Keypoint Law continues to strengthen its insolvency and disputes offering with the appointment of Wendy Jacobs and Mark Addison as Consulting Principals based in Sydney.  Both Wendy and Mark join Keypoint from the partnership of DibbsBarker.

Wendy has more than 25 years’ experience in restructuring and insolvency.  Her specialist expertise has led to her involvement in some of Australia’s largest restructuring matters, including James Hardie, and Lehman Brothers, as well as significant insolvency engagements, including HIH, New Cap Re and Fincorp.

Mark has 30 years’ experience, during which time he has established himself as a leader in the areas of insolvency, commercial disputes and litigation.  Mark has acted for many of Australia’s largest organisations, including listed companies, banks, large private companies, and government bodies both at the State and Commonwealth level. He has also represented a wide variety of Australia’s insolvency practitioners in corporate and bankruptcy insolvency matters.

Wendy and Mark are backed by a list of accolades, including recognition as leading lawyers in the Asia-Pacific region by Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500.

Both will join Keypoint on 30 April 2018.

The duo will add further depth to Keypoint’s team, which has grown to 30 senior lawyers in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra in under four years.

Commenting on the new appointments, Keypoint’s CEO Warren Kalinko said:

“I am delighted to welcome Wendy and Mark to the firm. Both are first-rate lawyers with impressive track records in the areas of restructuring, insolvency and disputes. Their depth of expertise and commitment to their clients will further bolster our highly regarded insolvency and disputes teams.

Speaking on what the appointments mean for Keypoint, Warren said:

Keypoint is committed to recruiting the best legal talent and the appointment of Wendy and Mark demonstrates that our approach is resonating. They join us at an exciting time as we continue to strengthen our client offering with the addition of high‑calibre senior lawyers.”
