Piper Alderman has strengthened its real estate team in Brisbane with the appointment of a new partner.
Judd Last has joined the firm from ClarkeKann Lawyers in the Queensland capital. He was also previously at Gadens.
Last adds to the firm extensive experience in property and commercial transactions, including a particular focus on retirement living, aged-care facilities, and manufactured-home parks in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors.
The new partner said that he was attracted to the firm for its reputation, presence, and market position.
“The broad national platform which Piper Alderman provides is critical in offering clients specialist expertise in the seniors living sector across multiple jurisdictions,” he said.
The appointment comes against the backdrop of the firm’s growth in the past year, said Tony Britten-Jones, Piper Alderman managing partner.
“Our Brisbane team has experienced significant growth in the last 12 months following the promotion of five new partners last year,” he said. “Judd’s appointment to the partnership further enhances our Brisbane offering and we are delighted Judd has chosen Piper Alderman to service his clients.”
