Darren Sumich
Partner, Brisbane
My practice focuses on all aspects of finance. I have particular expertise in corporate, property and leverage finance, aviation and asset finance and debt restructuring.

Having worked in Europe, the Middle East and Australia, I have extensive cross-border experience, which has given me a deep and varied understanding of financing transactions, structures and products. I pride myself on bringing technical and commercial insight to my client work, to provide valuable, tailored assistance.

I also have many years' experience working on Islamic finance matters in London and the Middle East, and I have a particular interest in advising clients in this emerging niche of the Australian market.

Career highlights

  • Considered a trusted adviser to the four major Australian banks and to listed and privately held corporations
  • Advised banks, airlines and lessors on aviation finance transactions
  • A pro bono partner in MinterEllison’s Brisbane office, driving our investment in the community and helping the disadvantaged seek access to justice
