Thomson Geer has strengthened its national banking and finance team with the appointment of Nicholas Creed as a Partner in its Perth office.

Nicholas joined the Perth office of Allens in 2016 as a Partner and before that spent 14 years at King & Wood Mallesons.

Nicholas has over 30 years’ experience working for top tier firms in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Hong Kong and Perth and has worked on numerous multi-billion dollar funding deals across various sectors.

His practice covers all aspects of banking and financial services, across industries and borders, acting for lenders and borrowers.

He has deep expertise in the resources and real estate sectors and is often ranked highly in legal industry directories.

Thomson Geer Chief Executive Partner Adrian Tembel said: “We’re excited to have Nick joining us and growing our capacity in Western Australia in this critical area of law. With Nick on the ground our Perth office will be able to provide our clients with the full suite of corporate legal services – from their early start-up stages to full maturity.”

Nicholas said he was pleased to be joining Thomson Geer and becoming part of its highly regarded banking and finance team. Thomson Geer works with top and mid tier Australian banks and a wide range of international financial institutions.

“Thomson Geer has a distinguished banking team,” Nicholas said. “I’m looking forward to becoming part of the Thomson Geer pedigree and working with the team to continue its growth.”

Nicholas is listed as a “Preeminent” Banking and Finance lawyer in Western Australia by Doyle’s Guide and is listed by Best Lawyers for Asset Finance, Banking and Finance Law, Debt Capital Markets Law, Distressed Investing and Debt Trading Practice, Energy Law, Investment Law, Natural Resources Law, Oil and Gas Law, Project Finance and Development Practice and Structured Finance Law. He is also listed as “Best Lawyer of the Year” in Asset Finance Law 2020 and Lawyer of the Year in Debt Capital Markets Law in Perth 2020.

Nicholas is also a Public Notary and takes a strong interest in the professional development of junior lawyers.

Nicholas’ appointment is the latest addition to Thomson Geer’s Banking and Finance partnership ranks, with Andrew Kedzior joining in Adelaide and Jae Lemin in Melbourne last year.
