01 Jul 2021 | 03:07 pm | 1 min. read

Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has recruited property and infrastructure partner Deanne Ogilvie in its Sydney office.

Deanne has a particular focus on large scale logistics infrastructure and transport projects covering a wide range of disciplines including joint venture arrangements, procurement, and property development including tenure and management regimes as well as mixed use schemes.

Deanne’s hire brings the total number of partners and lawyers based in Australia to 22 and 48 respectively.

Global Head of Infrastructure at Pinsent Masons, Ian Laing, said: “Deanne will play a vital role in advancing our multinational sector-led approach and brings extensive experience advising both public and private sector clients on major transportation and infrastructure projects. As such, Deanne will further embed our ties with multinational developers and investors in several key sectors for our global business.”

Joining from Norton Rose Fulbright, Deanne has advised numerous high-profile global and multinational businesses including Australia’s largest integrated provider of import and export logistics services Qube, Hassad, and Amazon. Most recently, Deanne has advised Qube on the development and operation of the Moorebank Logistics Park project including an associated private rail line and warehouse estate development and has advised Western Sydney Airport with regards to the grant of airport leases.

Commenting on her move, Deanne said: “The firm’s reputation as a leader in innovation and credentials advising on transformational infrastructure projects means this is an exciting move for me and a good fit for my practice. I’m looking forward to embedding my practice into the firm and working alongside my new colleagues in Australia and across the global network.”
