LAW firm Lander & Rogers has appointed two new senior partners to its Sydney office.
Minter Ellison has lost its former head of construction, engineering and infrastructure, David Fabian, to Lander & Rogers' Sydney office. Fabian has taken a senior partner role and will be responsible for growing a national projects, construction and infrastructure practice for the firm.
Fabian brings an extensive body of experience in these industries to the firm, the firm said. His expertise is in negotiating and managing major projects, project administration and dispute management. He is also trained and experienced as a mediator.
In another major coup for the firm, Neil Napper, former head of PricewaterhouseCooper's employment and industrial relations group has joined Lander & Rogers' workplace relations and safety group as a partner in the firm's Sydney office.
Napper, who has more than 20 years experience advising employers in both the private and public sectors has expertise in workplace restructures, dispute resolution, enterprise bargaining, employment litigation, occupational health and safety, discrimination and equal opportunity law.
Andrew Willder, the firm's firm’s chief executive partner, said: “We are delighted to have lawyers of [Fabian and Napper's] calibre on board. They both have extensive experience and solid reputations in their respective areas and their appointments help to underscore our growing presence in the Sydney legal market".
