Opperman leads K&L Gates’ restructuring and insolvency practice in Australia. His elevation to a practice group coordinator in K&L Gates’ global finance team recognises Opperman’s commitment to transplanting the skills he developed while leading a tier-one practice at his previous national firm to a global stage.
Under Opperman’s leadership, K&L Gates’ restructuring and insolvency practice is undeniably a growing force in Australia’s finance industry. In the past 12 months, the team has been bolstered by former HDY partner Leonard McCarthy and special counsel Zina Edwards, who joined from Herbert Smith Freehills. He has recently advised on a number of major matters, including Australasian Lawyer’s Restructuring and Insolvency Deal of the Year, the Atlas Iron restructure, as well as advising on the collapses of BBY and the Keystone Group, both high-profile matters.
