Maddocks poaches Ashurst duo

Maddocks has recruited Lucille Scomazzon (pictured) as a partner and Angela Wood as a senior associate in the firm’s commercial practice in Sydney.

Scomazzon and Wood have joined the firm from Ashurst.

Scomazzon has broad corporate and commercial law experience, with a particular focus on the aged care, health and life sciences, retirement living, disability services and education sectors.

"Maddocks offers the flexibility to further grow a practice that is not solely transaction based, but also a practice that is built on solid client relationships and trust. Angela and I look forward to continuing to work closely with our clients and helping them achieve their business objectives,” said Scomazzon.

Wood has been working with Scomazzon for more than seven years and has acted on a number of negotiated M&As, as well as advising on corporate governance, regulatory issues, contracting and outsourcing services, policy review and development and risk management.

David Rennick, Maddocks’ CEO, welcomed both lawyers’ wealth of experience.

“Lucille and Angela have acted for a range of industry participants, including institutional investors, government and regulatory bodies, financiers, developers, operators, receivers, acquirers and sellers. Our expanded expertise will benefit our clients across all of our sectors of government, infrastructure and services,” he said.
