This time UBS has chosen from the legal fraternity. Meadows has been a partner at law firm Allens Arthur Robinson since 1989 and has acted in many of AustraliaÆs largest commercial cases.
He has represented clients in legal and arbitral proceedings, and in mediation and other alternative dispute resolution processes involving banking and finance, companies and securities, takeovers, mining and resources, contract, tort, trade practices, corporate insolvency and revenue laws.
Meadows joins an elite club of three senior advisors now guiding the bank. The other two include the former head of JPMorgan in Australia Trevor Loewensohn and another former JPMorgan banker Peter Mason, who is also chairman of AMP.
Meadows will focus on UBSÆs Melbourne-based clients, working with bankers such as Peter Scott, Tim Antonie, Campbell Stewart, Stuart Wills and global vice chairman of investment banking Brett Paton.
ôPaul will bring different perspectives and insights to our business and people, assisting us in strengthening our overall reach,ö says UBS.
Meadows is a member of the executive committee of the litigation lawyers section of the Law Institute of Victoria, the International Bar Association and a LEADR (Lawyers Engaged in Alternative Dispute Resolution) accredited mediator. He began to practice in 1981 and worked at Linklaters & Paines in London in the late 1980s.
