Highly accomplished litigation lawyer Susie Stone (pictured) joins a five-person team of directors at Clarendon Lawyers in Melbourne.
Ms Stone has more than 12 years' experience handling commercial disputes in the Supreme and County Courts and the Federal Court, acting on a wide range of matters for Australian and international companies.
Clarendon’s managing director Tony Symons said Ms Stone’s appointment complements the firm's M&A capability.
“We select our practitioners very carefully and strategically, choosing people who not only have exceptional talent in their area of expertise, but who are as passionate about the client experience as we are. Susie ticks all the boxes,” Mr Symons said.
“With her technical and professional expertise, Susie adds further bench strength to our team – reinforcing our top-tier standards and high-performance culture.”
Clarendon appointed another head earlier this year from an international firm. John Mann made the move from K&L Gates in May to become a partner and director at Clarendon Lawyers.
