Rigby Cooke Lawyers has appointed Special Counsel, Daryl Lim to their Corporate & Commercial team, continuing the growth of its transaction capability.

With over 10 years of proven international experience, Daryl specialises in cross-border transactions, private equity and growth capital transactions across Australasia.

According to Mr Lim, Rigby Cooke’s focus on delivering thorough and commercially considered results for their clients is what attracted him to join the firm.

‘In my new role, I’ll continue to work with private equity and venture capital funds and corporate clients across a range of industries including healthcare and life sciences, technology and energy, infrastructure and resources,’ said Mr Lim.

Executive Chairman Bill Karvela welcomed Daryl to the firm.

‘Daryl is an exciting addition to Rigby Cooke’s Corporate & Commercial team, expanding our international expertise at a time when many international companies are viewing Australia as an emerging, lucrative marketplace for their products and services,’ Mr Karvela said.

Daryl has previously worked at international law firms in Singapore, Japan and Australia, and has completed client secondments with global companies: BP Australia and Toyota Tsusho Corporation.

“While we have a long history of M&A expertise, dating back to the 1800’s, we really cemented our reputation in the global M&A market in 2015 with the hiring of M&A Partner, James Donoghue, who Daryl will be working alongside.”
