Mills Oakley poaches three senior staff

Mills Oakley poaches three senior staff

National firm Mills Oakley Lawyers have expanded their Canberra team with three new hires, including senior associates from Minter Ellison and Sparke Helmore.

Mark Flint joined the firm as a partner from Meyer Vandenberg Lawyers in Canberra.

Mr Flint will bring “deep expertise across a variety of areas including disputes relating to commercial leasing, corporate law and insolvency,” according to a statement from Mills Oakley.

Meanwhile, Christina Graves came to the firm as a senior associate from Minter Ellison.

Ms Graves is “a dispute resolution expert with a particular focus on administrative law and litigation, privacy, and FOI,” the statement said.

In addition, Kylie Neville left Sparke Helmore for a senior associate position at Mills Oakley.

“Kylie acts for a number of large national insurers and her areas of expertise include public liability and professional indemnity and her recent matters include major public infrastructure and medical negligence claims,” the statement said.

Mills Oakley launched in Canberra less than six months ago with a staff of 14, including partners Vince Sharma, formerly of Norton Rose Fulbright, Adam Peppinck, formerly of Ashurst, and Paul Armargeo, formerly of DibbsBarker.

Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker said the new hires were in response to increased demand.

“The demand from clients has exceeded our most optimistic projections and we are pleased to demonstrate our continuing commitment to the Canberra market with these latest hires,” he said.
