Holding Redlich has appointed a new partner to its corporate and commercial practice group.

Luke Hooper has joined the firm’s Melbourne office, bringing with him specialist skills advising on the superannuation and financial services sector.

Throughout his career, Mr Hooper has acted for large industry-based government and corporate superannuation fund trustees and financial service providers.

In addition, he has acted “on a number of matters affecting superannuation funds including major superannuation investments, custody, administration, successor fund transfers and general commercial contracting,” according to a statement from Holding Redlich.

National managing partner Ian Robertson congratulated Mr Hooper on his new role.

“Luke has extensive experience of the principal legal and commercial issues affecting superannuation fund trustees and financial services providers, including all aspects of superannuation fund compliance, management and investment,” Mr Robertson said.

“We are very pleased to have Luke join our firm and know he will be a great asset to the national team.”

Mr Hooper said he was thrilled to join Holding Redlich, particularly given the traction his practice area is seeing at the moment.

“Superannuation law is ever evolving and I feel incredibly fortunate to have found myself practicing in this area of law that intrigues and challenges me while also practicing in a firm that has a strong commitment to and longstanding relationship with the superannuation industry,” he said.
