Middletons hires from Clayton Utz, again

Middletons hires from Clayton Utz, again

Middletons has hired a former Clayton Utz senior associate to its partnership. It's the second appointment from Clayton Utz in a month for the firm.

MIDDLETONS has hired a former Clayton Utz senior associate to its partnership.

Paris Petranis joins Middletons’ corporate and commercial group in Melbourne, speciallising in life sciences, health and aged care.

This is the second time in a month a Clayton Utz lawyer has taken a spot in the Middletons ranks. Kate Marshall joined the firm two weeks ago.

Middletons' national managing partner, Nick Nichola, said of Petranis’ appointment: “The firm has grown substantially and [Petranis’} appointment is a response to the increasing demand for legal services in the life sciences sector, particularly in the health, aged-care and pharmaceutical industries."

Middletons’ head of the corporate and commercial Group, Chris Nikou, said: "As well as having previously worked as a health care professional, [Petranis’] legal experience has been gained working with some of the best known companies in the health, aged-care and pharmaceutical space."

Petranis won the Harry Emerton Law Scholarship and the RJ Hamer Prize, and has been published in the Australasian Biotechnology and Australian Health & Medical Law journals and most recently presented at the Aged Care Association Annual Congress.

Pressed as to why he joins the Middletons partnership, Petranis said: "Middletons services a broad range of clients within the life sciences/health and aged care industry ... I was attracted by the quality of work Middletons has done both in Australia and globally."

Kate Marshall, also from Clayton Utz, joined the firm’s technology and innovations group as partner, a move she said gives her the chance to service great clients.

“It is obvious why the firm is so successful and I wanted to be part of it,” she said.

Previously at Clayton Utz, Marshall has experience in a range of Australian and international transactions relating to technology and intellectual property issues.
