National firm gains two disputes partners


Mills Oakley has announced the appointment of two commercial disputes partners, one in Canberra and one in Sydney.

Matt Roser has joined Mills Oakley’s Canberra office from Ashurst and Peter Hodges has joined Mills Oakley’s Sydney office from McLachlan Thorpe.

Mr Roser is a commercial litigator who advises government departments and agencies and private entities in relation to a wide variety of commercial disputes and litigation.

His areas of expertise include tort-based matters, breach of statutory duty, breach of contract, public and administrative law as well as professional negligence.

Mr Hodges acts for both corporate and individual clients and has extensive experience in significant litigation, as well as Royal Commissions and other Inquiries.

He has cultivated relationships across a diverse range of industries including IT, telecommunications, mining, financial services and hospitality.

Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker said: “Commercial litigation continues to be a core area for our firm.”

He continued: “We are particularly known for the diversity of industries in which we have deep dispute resolution experience and this strength will be enhanced with the arrival of Matthew and Peter.”

Mills Oakley recently appointed four partners from various firms; Zac Kerr from Herbert Smith Freehills, John Turnbull from M+K Lawyers, David Passarella from Gadens and David Marschke from KPMG.
