Lawyer returns to global giant in Sydney

by |
It took only five months for David Morgan to return to Dentons in Sydney.

The banking and finance lawyer has returned as a special counsel, after leaving when the global giant’s merger with Gadens went live in early December.

He has more than 15 years’ experience acting in complex financial matters both inside Australia and beyond. Morgan, who advises clients on transaction structure and the balance of commercial and financial imperatives, acts for clients on both sides of transactions.

He left Gadens as a senior associate after six years with the firm. Before working at Gadens, he was a senior associate at Freehills, Ashurst, and Allens Arthur Robinson.

Morgan said that he is excited to return to Dentons in Sydney, which he expects to continue getting work flow from outside of the country.

“On a personal level, I have been touched by the warm welcome I have received on my return to the firm,” he said.

Denton’s merger with Gadens was completed on 5 December. The Sydney, Perth, and Papua New Guinea offices of the Australian firm was integrated into the global firm’s network. Gadens’ Adelaide and Brisbane offices opted for an association with Dentons, but kept their branding. The Melbourne office was spun off into a separate business.
