New partner adds depth to HDY's Infrastructure & Finance teams

Henry Davis York has strengthened and deepened the legal talent available to clients in Infrastructure and Finance with the appointment of Rob White as a partner.

Infrastructure and financial services are core areas of focus for HDY and Rob brings significant expertise to the benefit of clients in both areas. Rob joins HDY from Ashurst's Infrastructure / Banking team.

A specialist in projects and project finance, Rob's specific skillset will provide great support to HDY's Infrastructure team which has secured some important infrastructure mandates in the past 12 months. 

"Our Infrastructure practice is going from strength to strength and is now recognised as a serious player in the market," HDY Managing Partner Michael Greene said.

"Rob has exceptional finance experience across a broad range of projects but has also had a special focus in: acting for government, sponsors and lenders in PPPs (public-private partnerships); project finance - not just in infrastructure but also mining and resources; and student accommodation projects for a number of leading Australian universities.

"Rob is an ideal fit for HDY. His broad experience and expertise in finance, combined with his track record in infrastructure projects, means our teams are ideally placed to deliver valuable, high-quality advice to clients, particularly those in infrastructure projects – regardless of the role they have in the matter."

According to Rob, he is excited to be joining a reinvigorated firm which is challenging many of the established players in the infrastructure area, while maintaining its market-leading presence in banking and finance.

"Henry Davis York has a remarkably strong and long-established reputation in the financial services and banking sector in Australia," he said. "There is also increasing recognition in the market of the infrastructure expertise and experience within the firm. This, combined with the value HDY places on providing the highest level of client service, made the firm very appealing to me.

"I am looking forward to helping HDY's Banking and Finance and Infrastructure teams continue their growth and development as market-leading practices."
