Craig Boyle (pictured) has been promoted to principal in the workplace relations & safety practice group.
Allion’s managing principal Phil Lucas said: “Craig’s promotion to principal is reflective of the significant impact he has had on his practice and the firm in general, and is recognition of the increasing respect he has gained from clients as well as the level of growth in his specialist area.”
The firm also promoted Ivan Armeli (litigation & dispute resolution) and Fiona Ellett (resources) to special counsel in Perth. Sarah Beaman (property) and Beth Robinson (workplace relations & safety) were promoted to senior associate, with Briony Pole promoted to associate.
All these promotions took effect on 1 July.
Also on 1 July, Allion opened a Sydney office, with David Walker, the former national head of Holding Redlich’s corporate and commercial team, and his Holding Redlich colleague Jon Cane, the office’s founding principals.
“These appointments are testament to the skills and knowledge as well as the effort and commitment each one has developed, and an indication of the growth Allion Legal has seen over the last year with the opening of our new Sydney office,” added Lucas.
