Lazard Said to Hire Goldman’s Asia Restructuring Head Edwards

July 23 (Bloomberg) -- Lazard Ltd., the largest independent merger-advisory firm, hired Lachlan Edwards from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to head its Australian capital structure advisory business, said two people familiar with the matter.

Edwards, who was Goldman’s head of Asia-Pacific restructuring, will start with Lazard in Sydney on Oct. 1, the people said, asking not to be identified because the details are private. He will report to John Wylie, managing director & head of corporate advisory for Australia, the people said.

Lazard bought Sydney-based independent advisory firm O’Sullivan Partners in September as it seeks to expand its business in the South Pacific nation. Former Prime Minister Paul Keating is the firm’s chairman of corporate advisory, according to Lazard’s Australian website.

Goldman Sachs spokeswoman Hayley Morris declined to comment on Edwards’s departure.
