Hall & Wilcox grows WA commercial practice with new partner appointment


Hall & Wilcox has expanded its Western Australian commercial practice and corporate practice nationally with the appointment of new partner Sevan Gore.

Sevan is a corporate and commercial lawyer based in Perth. He has extensive experience and capability in equity capital markets (ECM), public and private M&A, joint ventures, procurement and general corporate work. Sevan has a strong track record in leading ECM and M&A transactions for WA-based companies and founders.

Sevan joins Hall & Wilcox from Herbert Smith Freehills, where he was a senior lawyer in that firm’s market-leading corporate team.

Managing Partner Tony Macvean said Sevan’s appointment aligned with the firm’s strategic focus of expanding its commercial practice in WA, and building corporate strength nationally.

‘Sevan will work with our Perth partners to drive the growth of our commercial offering in the Perth market. His expertise will also strengthen our national corporate and equity capital markets practice, slotting in beautifully to our national corporate and ECM team. I spent a lot of time with Sevan as part of the “getting to know you” process and I think he will really bring something special to our clients and firm.’

Sevan said, 'I am thrilled to be part of a firm that has its clients, people and communities at the heart of everything it does. I look forward to contributing to the firm’s continued growth and success, particularly in the WA market.’

Hall & Wilcox is a leading independent law firm. We have more than 950 people, including approximately 120 partners, working across eight offices. We build partnerships with and service corporate, public sector and private clients, both Australian-based and those offshore doing business in Australia.
