Ashurst’s Australian merger partner Blake Dawson has lost two partners, with DLA Piper and Mallesons Stephen Jaques benefiting from the departures.
Real estate partner Les Koltai has over 20 years of experience in the REITs and investment real estate industry. He will join DLA Piper’s Sydney office as a partner in early 2012.
Melbourne-based M&A partner Peter Stirling is to take up partnership at Mallesons.

Mallesons chief executive partner Robert Milliner described Stirling’s appointment as “a strong strategic fit with the direction of the firm’s M&A team as we move forward with our 2015 strategic plan”.
