Clayton Utz recruits new talent to Corporate practice

Sydney, 28 August 2012: Clayton Utz is very pleased to announce the appointment of Natasha Davidson as a Director in its Corporate practice in Sydney, adding further depth to the firm's leading Capital Markets and M&A practices.

Natasha joins Clayton Utz from RBS (formerly ABN Amro), where she has held various legal and banking roles for nearly a decade. Natasha's most recent position as Director (ECM and M&A) saw her lead the legal negotiations and probity and procurement work streams on both the QR National and T3 landmark offers.

At the beginning of her career, Natasha spent over 4 years in the M&A group of another leading law firm and has lectured in law at Sydney University.

A testament to Natasha's market profile as a successful female in the finance industry is her past 5 years' experience as Chair of the AFMA Capital Raising Committee.

Clayton Utz Head of Equity Capital Markets Stuart Byrne said the combination of Natasha's outstanding technical skills and significant commercial acumen and experience made her an invaluable addition to the firm's Corporate practice.

"Our clients will reap the benefit of Natasha's considerable experience at the coalface of transactions working on both the legal and commercial side and her deep understanding of, and connections within, the investment banking industry," said Stuart.

Natasha's appointment follows a flow of high-profile hybrid work for the Clayton Utz team including Caltex Australia's $300 million offer of subordinated notes (advising Citigroup, UBS, National Australia Bank and Westpac Institutional Bank), APA Group's $350 million ASX-listed notes (advising Credit Suisse, Evans & Partners, Macquarie Capital, Morgan Stanley, RBS and RBS Morgans), and Tatts Group Limited's $200 million issue of Tatts Bonds (advising Tatts).
