Business and Property expert joins M+K national team, leads Property Group
John Turnbull, a highly regarded specialist in the fields of business and property law, joins M+K Lawyers as a Melbourne-based principal.
John has over 30 years’ legal experience and is one of very few lawyers to secure both property law and business law accreditation from the Law Institute of Victoria. He was formerly a founding partner of Melbourne based firm Mason Sier Turnbull.
With deep expertise in mergers and acquisitions, business restructuring and shareholder disputes as well as a broad range of commercial and retail property experience including due diligence, subdivision, off-the-plan and physical sales, John’s broad perspective will be a particular asset for M+K clients who keenly appreciate the value of commercial and pragmatic legal advice.
“I have watched and admired the growth of M+K over the last four years. M+K is a particularly dynamic law firm, and the calibre of the people here is exceptional."
“This, coupled with its focus on delivering pragmatic and commercially focussed legal support to mid-market organisations on an increasingly national basis, really resonates for me,” said John.
Besides heading M+K’s property group, John will continue to offer a broad range of business legal services to clients.
“I anticipate that this will continue to be quite a difficult year in the property sector – but the broad business perspective that I bring to M+K will help clients recognise that in even difficult times there is opportunity. I see my role as meeting clients’ day by day legal requirements in the property arena, but also working with them to identify and realise broader business opportunities.”
