Sydney, 14 August 2013: Clayton Utz continues to make strategic investments that will enhance its offering to financial services industry clients, recruiting David Ephraums to join the Firm's Superannuation practice, as a partner.

David began his career in private practice and has over 25 years' experience in the financial services sector, including senior in-house legal roles with BT Financial Group, UBS Global Asset Management and AMP.

His legal and industry experience spans financial services, funds management, superannuation, life insurance, portfolio services, financial advice and distribution, and retail banking, including advice on governance and compliance issues.

David will join the Firm's Banking and Financial Services practice as a member of the Superannuation team, which includes respected practitioners Jane Paskin, a former ASFA board member, director Sonia Lopes, and senior associates, Phillip Turner and Sophie Dalton.

The department head of the Clayton Utz Banking and Financial Services practice, Steve O'Reilly, said clients would benefit from David's unique industry background and experience.

"With continued consolidation and regulatory change in the superannuation and funds management sectors, our clients with core services in these areas need legal advisers who understand the industry and regulatory environment within which they operate, as well as the commercial drivers of their businesses. David offers our clients a unique combination of deep legal and industry knowledge, relationships, and experience, with the ability to help them achieve successful commercial outcomes while at the same time meeting their regulatory obligations."
