National firm picks up two teams

National firm picks up two teams

Holding Redlich has deepened its bench strength with the hire of two new partners, as well as their respective teams.

Brisbane partner Rachel Drew, along with a special counsel, senior associate and a lawyer, join the firm's workplace relations and safety team from TressCox.

Ms Drew practices in industrial relations, employee entitlements and award coverage. She specialises in advising employers and human resources professionals in relation to employee management and entitlements.

Commenting on her new role as workplace relations partner, Ms Drew said: "I am very much looking forward to working with my new colleagues across the firm and growing the practice in Brisbane. Holding Redlich has an excellent and well-regarded national workplace relations and safety team."

Ms Miehe was most recently a managing director of Oceanie Lawyers, whose operations merged with Holding Redlich on 1 July.

Alongside Ms Miehe, the merger will add a special counsel and two French lawyers to Holding Redlich's ranks.

Australia-based Oceanie Lawyers advised foreign companies in relation on Australian investments and operations. The firm also advised operations in the Pacific region, specifically in French-speaking markets such as New Caledonia and French Polynesia.

Ms Miehe said that joining up with Holding Redlich added valuable expertise and resources to her team.

"We have a unique offering at Oceanie Lawyers, working with companies throughout the Pacific Region. The opportunity to join a leading national firm means we have the additional expertise, resources and reach to take our practice to the next level," Ms Miehe said.

National managing partner Ian Robertson welcomed the two new partners, saying both were "highly skilled and very well regarded in the industries in which they work".

Holding Redlich’s recent growth has also been reflected in a number of promotions made in the Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney offices. The promotions include five new special counsel and nine senior associates.

Women have outperformed their male colleagues in the latest promotion rounds, earning four of the five special counsel promotions and six senior associate positions.

The new partner promotions make five female partners in the Brisbane office’s 14-partner team. According to a statement released by Holding Redlich, the outcomes are in line with a "long-standing commitment to diversity and gender equality".
