Women dominate HopgoodGanim promotions
HopgoodGanim made 14 promotions to start its financial year, the majority of which were female practitioners.
The firm promoted Hayden Delaney (pictured) to partner in its Brisbane information & communications technology/ intellectual property practice, made two promotions to special counsel, four to senior associate and seven to associate.
Commenting on the promotions, HopgoodGanim’s managing partner Bruce Humphrys said they reinforce the strength of HopgoodGanim as well as the firm’s ongoing growth in response to client demand.
He added: “I am also delighted to note that eight of these promotions are female. We continue to be committed to providing a diverse environment in which to work ... eight also seems to be the magic number, with eight of those promoted having done their articles with us.
“All our promoted lawyers have made outstanding contributions to the firm and continually strive to deliver exceptional outcomes and service for our clients.
“Our new partner, Hayden Delaney, has been managing our information & communications technology/intellectual property practice for a number of years and has built the practice to a point where his team is sought out by clients across the country and beyond.”
Alexandra Moles and Rachael Murray were both promoted to special counsel in the firm’s family law practice in Brisbane. Alex Davies (corporate) and Stephanie Tan (litigation) were promoted to senior associate in Perth, with Damon King (employment) and Gemma Ayriss (planning & environment) promoted to senior associate in Brisbane.
Of the seven associate appointments, six of the promotions were in the firm’s Brisbane office, with one in its Perth office.
Humphrys added that the number of staff members promoted also reflects the firm’s ongoing commitment to strong career development for its employees.
“The firm remains dedicated to promoting from within and providing the support and training our practitioners require to achieve their goals.”
All promotions took effect on 1 July.
