DibbsBarker appoints new chairman, board

DibbsBarker appoints new chairman, board

Law firm DibbsBarker has appointed a new chairman and two new members to its board.

LAW firm DibbsBarker has appointed a new chairman and two new members to its board. 

Andrew Saxton, the new chairman of the DibbsBarker Board today confirmed the appointment of Scott Guthrie and Kylie Matthews.

The DibbsBarker partners join Terry Killian, Tom Lennox and managing partner, Alan McArthur.

The move comes after DLA Piper poaches two partners from Dibbs Barker in July. Jim Holding and David Richardson moved across to DLA Piper's corporate and intellectual property and technology teams, respectively, in Brisbane. 

Disputes and litigation partner Guthrie has 15 years experience in the finance, insolvency and property sectors.

Matthews, a partner in the national property industry practice, is also on the Board of Advisers for the Property Industry Foundation.

In 2009, while Matthews was a partner at law firm Herbert Geer, she was a Woman Lawyer of the Year nominee.

Saxton said changes to the board and its structure, together with the influx of new partners to the firm’s governance reflect the changes that have taken place as the firm has positioned itself to deliver on its industry group strategy.

Lennox, McArthur, Matthews and Saxton have all joined DibbsBarker in the last four years.
