HLB Mann Judd Brisbane has appointed Chew Mar as director and head of its Restructuring and Risk Advisory Division in Brisbane.
Chew was most recently with an international investment bank in Hong Kong, where he advised on corporate restructuring, cross-border international financing and advisory transactions in the Asia Pacific region.
James Henderson, managing partner of HLB Mann Judd Brisbane, says:
“Chew’s international experience in restructuring, risk advisory and insolvency, bring significant depth and breadth of expertise and experience to the firm. His particular experience in the mining and resources, property and construction, retail and manufacturing, and agribusiness industries, will stand us in good stead.’’
Tony Fittler, chairman of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association, says:
“Australian businesses are increasingly competing on a global stage and having access to Chew’s knowledge and skills, gained in both Asia and Europe, will be especially valuable to businesses needing restructuring or risk advice.”
Chew has over 18 years’ experience in multi-jurisdictional corporate restructuring and recovery, cross-border international financing and advisory transactions in Australia, Asia and Europe.
He has previously worked for an international investment bank and corporate advisory firms in Hong Kong, London, Sydney and Brisbane. Chew is a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and a solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
