Sparke Helmore takes six from Middletons

Sparke Helmore takes six from Middletons

A team of six banking and finance lawyers, including two partners, is joining Sparke Helmore from Middletons._x000D_

A team of six banking and finance lawyers, including two partners, is joining Sparke Helmore from Middletons.

The firm has recruited two partners, Ben Burney and Adam Fuller,  one senior associate Maggie McGushin, and three lawyers, including Andrew Johnston, Matthew O'Sullivan and Kate Stevens. It has also hired Middletons paralegal Kylie Young.

Sparke Helmore said the expansion of its banking and finance capability coincides with renewed activity by financial services clients.

Ben Burney, Adam Fuller and Maggie McGushin are all Sparke Helmore alumni, having moved to Middletons in April 2008. 

The firm is now keen to make clear that at the time of their departure, it acknowledged publicly that their departure was unfortunate and that the team had made a terrific contribution to Sparke Helmore and our clients' finance transactions

The non-partner contingent will commence at Sparke Helmore on 30 May 2011. A commencement date at Sparke Helmore for partners Ben Burney and Adam Fuller is the subject of discussion with Middletons.

Sparke Helmore said today that every Australian law firm is responding in its own way to client demands for better value. The lateral movement of partners to Sparke Helmore illustrates that industry-wide trend, it said in a statement.

The New Lawyer has requested comment from Middletons.
