Perth-based firm recruits new partner

Perth-based firm recruits new partner


Two-office firm Borrello Graham Lawyers has appointed Julius Skinner as a partner.

Mr Skinner (pictured) joined Borrello Graham Lawyers from Jackson McDonald, where he had been a partner for more than seven years.

He specialises in local government law, town planning and development and environmental law.

“Clients have more options and expectations today in terms of legal services than ever before,” Mr Skinner said.

“Legal expertise and experience is still crucial, of course, but law firms now also need to be more nimble and responsive than has previously been the case.

“[At Borrello Graham Lawyers] we see the combination of a smaller firm, with a team of senior, recognised lawyers in focused practice areas, as setting a new standard in our areas of practice.”

Borrello Graham Lawyers has also promoted Hendrik van Aswegen to partner. Mr van Aswegen joined the firm as a special counsel in August last year.

“Julius and Hendrik bring additional depth and expertise to the firm, which allows us to expand the range of services we can provide for our local, national and international clients,” said Mark Borrello, managing principal of Borrello Graham Lawyers.

In August last year, Graham & Associates and Borrello Legal merged to create Borrello Graham Lawyers.
