KWM has received the Deal of the Year award from the Law Institute of Victoria for its role in advising government-owned health insurer Medibank on its high-profile privatisation.

At almost $5.7billion, Medibank’s listing is second largest IPO in Australian history. KWM’s appointment as advisers to Medibank followed the firm’s significant role on the initial scoping study which included consideration of the method and timing of the sale. 

Several Melbourne Partners worked on the high profile deal including, Peter Stirling, Neil Carabine, Nicola Charlston, Joe Muraca and Murray Kellock. They were supported by Senior Associates Marissa Bendyk and David Bryant.
