Minter Ellison has announced the arrival of Matthew Hibbins to its Hong Kong Corporate team.

Previously a partner with a leading Australian law firm in Melbourne, Matthew joins the firm with specialist corporate law experience in private equity transactions, joint ventures, capital raisings, mergers and acquisitions and corporations and securities laws.

Minter Ellison's Greater China Corporate and Commercial practice has been extremely busy and Matthew's arrival will enable the team to provide enhanced support for the growing demands of their clients. Recent work includes advising on a large-scale merger for a leading financial services client and a private equity fund on the reorganisation of its assets.

Fred Kinmonth, Head of the practice said "Matthew is a talented and highly experienced corporate lawyer. We are delighted that he is joining us and look forward to working with him."

Hong Kong office Managing Partner Sam Farrands, added "We believe that Matthew's arrival will add real value to the services we provide to our clients. He is an excellent addition to our already strong practice, and we are thrilled to welcome him as a partner in the firm."
