Hamilton Locke Partner, Margot King, Relocates to Perth

Hamilton Locke is delighted to announce that property partner, Margot King, has relocated to our Perth office. Margot is originally from Perth, having started her career with Allens. Margot will be joined by Special Counsel Kaday Conteh who has recently joined Hamilton Locke from King Wood Mallesons. Margot will be based in our Perth office but will continue working on projects across Australia and internationally.

Our Perth office launched in February 2022 and has since grown exponentially. The addition of Margot will further bolster the capabilities and expertise of our Perth office.

Margot is experienced in advising on complex property issues in energy, infrastructure and development projects. Most recently, she has been collaborating with our projects team on renewables projects across NSW, Victoria and Queensland. She also has strong experience in mixed use urban regeneration projects. Highlights of Margot’s career have included the $6 billion Barangaroo South project for Lendlease and the $3.2 billion Parramatta Square project for Walker Corporation.   

Commenting on the news, Margot King said, “Since I joined Hamilton Locke in May 2022, the Perth office has grown exponentially in terms of headcount and capability. I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues and reconnecting with friends, former clients and colleagues in Perth. I am excited to start-up Hamilton Locke’s property capability in Western Australia. There is a lot of potential in the renewables sector in WA, particularly in hydrogen projects, and I look forward to being part of the economic transition as we head to net zero by 2050”.
