Tim Gerbanas finds the diversity and range of work make every day in Redchip’s Commercial team different and challenging.
Driven by his broad commercial experience, Associate Director Tim sees himself as a facilitator and adviser on commercial transactions and the creation and structuring of new business ventures. His background provides him with a unique perspective from which to focus on technology transactions and emerging or start-up companies at all stages – from establishment and funding, to scaling and exit.
“Every settlement of a commercial transaction is a highlight for me. I am at my best when I understand a client’s business and am working with them to achieve the goals they’re pursuing.”
It is Tim’s capacity to identify risk and foresee previously unanticipated issues before they arise that is key to his clients capitalising on the opportunities they are chasing, and identifying and managing potential exposure.
Every settlement is a highlight for Tim. He revels in the twists and turns involved in a client acquiring or divesting businesses, and thrives on building a close rapport with clients over time and celebrating significant milestones along the way.
Tim advises on numerous corporate and commercial transactions across corporates (both private and publically listed), universities, management teams, start-up entrepreneurs and private equity and venture capital funds. Transactions include unregulated mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, structuring and negotiation, and commercial matters spanning the full investment cycle.
Additionally, he has invaluable intellectual property credentials which be brings to the table for his clients from creation, acquisition and commercialisation through to management, protection and enforcement of rights.
Tim was initially drawn to Redchip by a desire to work for a boutique outfit with a team of people aligned with his outlook, values and interests.
I believe in commercially relevant, straight-to-the-point, practical advice.
