Holding Redlich has boosted its corporate and commercial group with the appointment of lawyers from Allens Arthur Robinson and DLA Piper.
Michael Grosser and Suzy Cairney join the firm as partners in the Brisbane office.
Grosser, formerly of DLA Piper, also had 17 years’ experience in the technology industry as a non-lawyer. He was founder and CEO of an Australian company operating in the government and corporate sectors in Australia and overseas.
Grosser said Holding Redlich seemed to be a firm on a strong growth path, and that it is expanding its capability in key areas of his practice including projects, infrastructure and IT.
Cairney was formerly a senior associate at Allens Arthur Robinson.
Paul Venus, Managing Partner of Holding Redlich in Brisbane, said the corporate and commercial Group in Brisbane had grown.
“We’ve gone from zero to five corporate and commercial partners in just over four years … But this is not growth for growth’s sake; we’ve strategically grown and developed the Corporate and Commercial Group in Brisbane to support strong and growing demand.”
Grosser said the partners and staff in his new practice have “excellent and complementary skill sets and experience to my own”.
“Joining the firm is a great opportunity for me to leverage my industry and business experience in a supportive, collegiate and dynamic environment,” he said.
