Property & Development

Having led a series of market leading, property backed M&A transactions over the last 12 months, Arnold Bloch Leibler’s property practice is a finalist for Property Team of the Year in this prestigious national awards program.

Each of the recent transactions cited in the nomination was extraordinary complex, with many involving multiple properties across multiple jurisdictions and all of them completed within extremely tight timeframes.
They included:
  • Advising US-listed Medical Properties Trust on the high profile acquisition and leaseback of $1.25bn of hospitals from Australian private hospital operator Healthscope. 
  • Advising on the sale of privately owned group Dial-a-Dump to the recently ASX listed Bingo Industries for $577.5m represented a similarly significant component of a historic deal.
  • Advising Mt Atkinson Holdings on innovative joint venture development and financing agreements with Stockland for the development of a 260 hectare industrial, logistics and business park in Mt Atkinson.
Asked what success meant to his team, lead Property Partner Ken Gray said: “For a practice team like ours to succeed as we do, each individual needs to share a passion to deliver for our clients. 
“They need to understand their own distinct role in that, and to know that their contribution is recognised and valued.”
The winners in the Australian Law Awards will be announced at a gala dinner in Sydney on 9 August.
