Australian firm Blake Dawson Waldron is continuing to build its corporate department with the appointment of Mallesons Stephen Jaques partner Leigh Warnick. Warnick specialises in contested take-overs as well as in the energy sector. He recently advised Woodside Petroleum on its response to Shells attempted hostile take-over.
