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. The bid was ultimately blocked. Warnick also acted for South African mining company Iscor on its acquisition of an interest in the Australian mining project, Hope Downs Iron Ore. His appointment follows that of former Lovells corporate partner Rupert Lewi, who joined the firm two weeks ago. Warnick will be based in the Perth office.
