Clyde & Co recently added a team of two senior associates, Darryl Smith and Steven Donley, and one associate, Erica Leaman (pictured), from NRF to its Melbourne office.

Mr Donley has experience in complex disputes in the D&O, financial institutions, professional indemnity, construction all risks and ISR areas. He has practised in Australia, Canada and Ireland.
Clyde & Co opened in Australia in September 2012 with offices in Sydney and Perth. Since then it has grown to four offices and more than 150 staff across the country.
