Debbie Tran

Senior Associate

Debbie approaches her work with an interactive and engaged attitude, focusing on active listening and collaboration. This is an approach she considers vital for effective communication within the team and with clients, and results in solutions that are attuned to each strategy and project at hand. She knows where to push hard for terms when necessary, when to be flexible or strategic, and how to manage multiple stakeholders concurrently – even when working towards something that seems infinitely complex.

Debbie specialises in broad corporate transactions and M&A, including acquisition and disposal of shares, businesses and assets, private equity transactions and general corporate advisory work. Having worked across a range of industries, she advises clients in connection with a variety of matters, including share and asset sales, capital raisings and general corporate advisory work.

Prior to joining Hamilton Locke, Debbie worked for Eakin McCaffery Cox.
