Briggs has continued to deliver what clients in the past have termed ‘technically fantastic’, ‘innovative’ and ‘commercial’ advice on a number of complex, large-scale property, development and government infrastructure transactions throughout 2013 and 2014. From leading DEXUS Property Group’s strategic acquisitions in Perth and Brisbane over the period worth $1bn in aggregate, to co-leading the landmark NSW Ports $5.07bn refinancing and long-term lease of Port Botany and Port Kembla, Briggs has continued to impress her long list of clients, which read as a ‘who’s who’ of the sector. They include AMP Capital Investors, Australand Holdings, Brookfield Multiplex, Commonwealth Bank, Charter Hall, Mirvac, the NSW Department of Transport, RailCorp, Sydney Ports Corporation, State Property Authority, and the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority.
