Jones Day has hired mining expert Tony Wassaf as a partner in its Sydney office.
The former leader of the Australian Mining and Petroleum Law Association joins from Allens Arthur Robinson where he spent the last 20 years focusing on M&A in the coal mining and renewable energy sectors.
Wassaf says: “I am looking forward to being part of a team whose global footprint will provide current and prospective clients with the best international expertise and resources.”
He will continue working in M&A for energy and resource projects at Jones Day advising on issues such as native title, legislative and policy issues, negotiating commercial agreements, joint ventures, project financing and foreign investment laws.
