Caliburn, with 40 employees, has been working with Greenhill since 2003. The firm has offices in Sydney and Melbourne, and has advised on $170 billion in deals since its inception, the statement said.
The deal “advances our efforts to develop a larger business in Asia, building on the 2008 opening of our Tokyo office and looking forward to opportunities in China and elsewhere in the region,” Scott L. Bok, Greenhill’s co-chief executive, said in a statement. “From an industry sector point of view, Caliburn significantly expands our capabilities in energy, mining, financial services, consumer and many other important sectors.”
Caliburn was founded in 1999 by Peter Hunt, Simon Mordant and Ron Malek, coming from ABN Amro. With Richard Phillips, Roger Feletto and Jamie Garis, they are the firm’s six managing directors, and will join Greenhill once the deal has closed.
