Lisa Wright was the head of litigation at Atanaskovic Hartnell Lawyers' before joining the national firm.
Ms Wright (pictured) specialises in commercial dispute resolution and has experience providing advice on Corporations Act matters, contractual disputes, equitable claims, misleading or deceptive conduct claims and professional negligence.
“Lisa brings over 20 years of experience as a fine litigator with an impressive resume of running large complex commercial litigation matters,” said Gadens litigation head John Dalzell.
“Lisa will bring so much more than her litigation credentials; she is also a strong role model for the young female lawyers and she brings great warmth and openness to the workplace.”
Ms Wright will commence at Gadens in April.
This is the second lateral hire partner to join the dispute resolution team since the firm’s announcement of a combination with global Dentons. Ben Allen joined the team from Norton Rose Fulbright in January.
