Ash St Partners – a newly formed Australian boutique - has hired a new partner to its projects and finance team in Sydney, Australia.

Shaun McGushin joins the firm from Corrs Chambers Westgarth where he further developed his expertise in banking, finance, infrastructure and projects across a range of sectors at home and abroad.

Also a former Herbert Smith Freehills partner, McGushin will join the boutique as a principal and director.

Ash St Partners was launched in March 2014 by former Maddocks partners Peter Keel and Peter Shaw and former regional counsel at IBM Jason Dixon.
