Newly-named firm makes principal appointment

Newly-named firm makes principal appointment

A DLA Piper senior associate has returned to his former firm to take up a position as principal.

Phil Broderick (pictured) has joined Sladen Legal as principal to lead the firm’s superannuation team. Broderick previously worked for eight years at Harwood Andrews, which was what the firm was called before it changed the name of its Melbourne office on 17 May to Sladen Legal.

The firm also recently moved to the newly-built Lantern Building in Melbourne’s Docklands precinct.

“The opportunity to re-join the firm during a time of significant change was unique,” said Broderick, who left Harwood Andrews to join DLA Piper in 2010. “The new identity will define its future growth and I look forward to being a part of it.”

In his new role, Broderick will lead the firm’s superannuation practice, while also providing advice in relation to tax, succession, estate planning, trusts and business structuring.

Sladen Legal’s managing principal, Dan Simmonds, said: “Phil’s skills and experience are widely recognised within the legal industry and he is a regular author and presenter on superannuation and taxation matters.”

“His extensive knowledge of superannuation issues and his commitment to developing strategic solutions for his clients make him a great asset to our team and to the Sladen Legal brand. We are very happy to have him back on board,” he added.

Broderick is a member of the SISFA technical committee and the ASFA SMSF Standing Advisory Panel. He is also a chartered tax advisor with The Tax Institute and a member of the Cornish College Council.
