A mid-tier firm has recruited a senior lawyer from Minter Ellison for its property practice in Sydney.

Siew Tong (pictured) has been appointed as a partner at Hicksons after almost 11 years as a special counsel at Minters.


Ms Tong has over 30 years’ experience advising on the full range of property-related transactions for Australian and Asian corporate and high-net-worth individuals.

Hicksons’ managing partner, John Markos, said Ms Tong’s appointment both complements and broadens the scope of services currently being provided by property partner Adrian Liaw, describing Siew’s appointment as a “natural fit” with the firm.


Last month, Minters lost another three special counsel from its disputes and corporate practices. Disputes specialists Craig Gough and Andrew Logan, along with corporate lawyer Stephanie Rowland, were appointed as partners in Mills Oakley’s new Perth office.
