Aitken adds to partnership

Aitken adds to partnership

Melbourne-based law firm Aitken Partners has announced the appointment of Anton Dunhill as a partner. Dunhill is a key member of the firm’s property disputes and compulsory acquisitions team and is also the firm’s pro bono coordinator.

He started with Aitken Partners as a lawyer in 2005 and has since built a practice in dispute resolution, focused on compulsory acquisition and property disputes.

“Becoming a partner is about more than just hitting billing targets, it is about how someone fits with the firm culture and, for us, whether they provide exceptional client service,” said managing partner Andrew Blogg. “Anton excels in all those areas, which is shown by the work he has been doing for clients in the area of compulsory acquisition – the results he has achieved are outstanding.”

Dunhill’s work has included representing bodies such as unChain St Kilda in its various attempts to prevent a development known as the St Kilda Triangle, and other land and business owners affected by infrastructure projects. He also represents clients in complex wills and estates disputes as well as guardianship matters and powers of attorney.

Dunhill is also representing clients affected by projects such as the Regional Rail Link, Yan Yean Road Duplication, Dandenong Revitalisation Project and the Harcourt Rural Modernisation Project.
