MARCUS CONNOR

Partner, Corporate

Understanding begins with listening
Marcus is ready to tackle your demanding transaction or dispute. He enjoys helping his clients with their tough and challenging corporate and litigation matters.
His diverse work includes advising clients on mergers, acquisitions, shareholder disputes, divestments, capital raisings, takeovers, board and shareholder disputes.
Marcus recently won a landmark battle for control of an ASX listed mining company which remained in control of the incumbent managers for 30 years despite several failed attempts by shareholders to remove board. That matter involved responding to threats to sue his clients for defamation, successfully handling the Australian Takeover Panel proceedings, requisitioning an extraordinary general meeting of the target company and successfully running court proceedings to prevent the target company from obstructing the conduct of that meeting.
Marcus grew up in Sydney, Australia. In his free time, he works out and enjoys spending time with his wife and kids.
