Stan Kondilios (pictured) has been appointed as a partner in Hall & Wilcox’s property, planning and construction team based in Sydney.
Lawyers Weekly exclusively revealed last year that Kondilios had left Maddocks to launch his own boutique firm SK Partners. He had been at the national firm for 12 years and was the partner-in-charge of the Sydney office, the head of the firm’s Public Law group and the chair of the Maddocks board.
His departure followed failed merger talks between Maddocks and UK firm Pinsent Masons, which poached Maddocks CEODavid Rennick in launching its Australian practice.
Kondilios will be joined at Hall & Wilcox by former Maddocks special counsel Maurice Doria, who was the general counsel of Parramatta City Council for four-and-a-half years until March 2014 and recently held the position of acting legal services director for the City of Sydney Council.
Doria will commence the new role in February.
Melbourne-headquartered, Hall & Wilcox expanded into Sydney at the start of 2014 by acquiring Duncan Cotterill’s Sydney practice.
