Mallesons Stephen Jaques has appointed a new partner to its London office.

Ken Astridge, a banking and finance and stamp duties specialist, has joined the firmís London office providing legal advice in all areas of banking and finance, including retail and corporate banking, syndications, work outs, securitisation and structured financing.

This move follows the recent expansion of Mallesonsí Hong Kong office, with the addition of seven new partners to its regional base.

The London office of Mallesons is an important link to the Asia Pacific and the firmís gateway to the UK and Europe.

Practising both Australian and English law the office was opened in 1976 to service the increasingly complex legal needs of financial institutions and corporate clients. In conjunction with the Australian and Hong Kong offices, Mallesonsí London office supports the firmís international client base.

The London team, led by partner-in-charge Tim Blue, who specialises in corporate work, plays a key role in cross-border mergers and corporate transactions involving Australia and other jurisdictions in the Asia Pacific region.

Coinciding with the expansion of its London practice, Mallesons has moved to Alder Castle, Noble Street, EC2.

In announcing the appointment of Ken Astridge, Tim Blue said: "We routinely use teams across our different offices to resource transactions with a cross-border element, and utilise our network to access legal knowledge and resources in transactions involving multiple jurisdictions.

"With a strengthened presence in London and in the Asia Pacific, I believe Mallesons is now even better placed to offer comprehensive and cutting-edge legal resources to its increasingly international client base."
