Ben Rumble
Partner, Perth
I specialise in debt finance, and have extensive experience in the loan and debt capital markets assisting borrowers, financiers and sponsors with their financing and other strategic transactions, including in relation to real estate, corporate and acquisition finance.

In addition to having significant experience gained in top tier law firms, I am also able to draw on my extensive experience from a range of roles undertaken within major financial institutions, where I have worked not only in support of transaction origination and execution but also in support of corporate treasury. This perspective helps me to partner closely with my clients whether they be providers or users of capital, to fully understand their objectives, and to navigate a path through complex issues with advice and support that is commercial, practical and tailored to the situation.
