Hazel Brasington (pictured) was a partner at HFW for eight years. She has also held roles at Ashurst (then Blake Dawson Waldron) and Clyde & Co.
Brasington’s practice includes contentious and advisory work in international trade, shipping, energy, commodities, ports and logistics.
NRF has made a number of lateral hires in 2014, including energy & resources partner Keira Brennan in Brisbane, insurance partner Ray Giblett in Sydney, Melbourne-based employment partner Helene Lee and Adrienne Parker, who joined the firm’s construction and major projects practice in Perth.
This week NRF senior associate Aaron Suine joined Piper Alderman in Sydney as a partner.
The global firm also lost two partners in July.
HFW poached two energy partners from Lavan Legal earlier this year.
