Former Corrs Chambers Westgarth partner Michael Harrison has joined Minter Ellison in Sydney.
 
Harrison, who will be a partner at Minter Ellison as well, advises clients on energy, environment, and infrastructure projects, as well as those in transportation. Last year, he represented government-owned local utility the Water Corp. of Western Australia on a $306 million funding deal for its public-private partnership with a consortium of private investors on the Mundaring Water Treatment Plant.
 
Harrison joined Corrs Chambers as partner in 2003. Prior to that, he was the head of the transport and logistics practice at Clayton Utz.
 
Minter Ellison has 593 lawyers working in its financially integrated offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Hong Kong, China, Mongolia, and London. The firm also has associated offices in New Zealand, Adelaide, Darwin and Gold Coast.
 
The firm has 252 lawyers in Sydney, including 73 partners.
 
Correction, 12/12/12: An earlier version of this story incorrectly described Minter Ellison’s structure. The fourth paragraph has been revised to note that the firm has both financially integrated and associated offices.
