Ashurst gives five chance to shine as partners

Ashurst gives five chance to shine as partners

Ashurst has made five promotions to its Australian partnership to coincide with the start of the new financial year.

The new partners are: James Hall (employment) in Brisbane; Tim Klineberg and Emanuel Poulos (pictured) in the insolvency group in Sydney; and Kylie Lane (corporate) and Kellech Smith (intellectual property and copyright) in Melbourne.

Ashurst’s managing partner Australia John Carrington said: “The appointment of these men and women is an acknowledgement of their expertise and track record in providing the highest level of client service, as well as their commitment to their practices, teams and the firm as a whole.

“It is a source of significant pride to our current partners that, within our firm, we have lawyers of such high quality and possessed of such fine personal attributes. It is pleasing that we are able to provide them with this very exciting career opportunity at a time when the profession is going through a period of profound change.

“On behalf of the firm, I wish to congratulate them all on achieving this significant milestone in their careers.”

Ashurst also announced that it will be promoting four lawyers to the role of special counsel and 34 to the position of senior associate.

These new appointments mean that, as of 1 July when the promotions take effect, the total partnership count at Ashurst Australia will be 190.

Ashurst, which earlier this year rubbished rumours that it was set to “cull” 50 of its partners in Australia, also recently appointed the first independent members to its Board.
