In a 2011 arbitration case, he led a team at then-Mallesons Stephen Jaques, representing manufacturer White Industries Australia Ltd. on <a href="http://www.almcms.com/sites/international/2017/10/04/white-case-adds-arbitration-partner-in-sydney/" target="_blank">a successful claim </a>against��the Republic of India of violating the��bilateral investment treaty between the two countries. Bonnell had been a partner with Mallesons since 1999, having first joined the firm four years earlier. He began his career with the predecessor firm of the large Australian firm Allens. White &amp; Case officially <a href="http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/legal-affairs/white-cases-melbourne-office-reflects-wall-street-firms-ambitions/news-story/f5b521e3e753c40423846b14603083d7" target="_blank">opened its doors in Sydney in September</a> with project finance partners��Joel Rennie and��Cameron Watson. Both lawyers joined the firm from Herbert Smith Freehills as part of a <a href="http://www.international.law.com/id=1202766636414" target="_blank">10-partner exodus </a>from the Anglo-Australian firm a little over a year ago. They launched both Sydney and Melbourne offices for the U.S. firm. Herbert Smith Freehills subsequently <a href="http://www.international.law.com/id=1202778910573" target="_blank">sued the departing partners</a> over a��noncompete clause in their contracts. As a result of the lawsuit, these lawyers first joined White &amp; Case as senior lawyers in March and became partners in September. <
