Real estate partner Lexia Wilson (pictured left) and intellectual property partner Tim O’Callaghan (pictured right) are stepping up to support Piper Alderman’s managing partner Tony Britten-Jones as deputy managing partners in a bid to grow the business and attract new talent to the firm.
“I am delighted to announce Lexia’s and Tim’s appointment as deputy managing partners, which is richly deserved and recognised as such by clients and colleagues,” Mr Britten-Jones said.
“We are committed to providing top-quality services to our clients and both Lexia and Tim have made a significant and valued contribution to the management of the business.”
Meanwhile Tim Lange has been promoted to national head of employment relations, and Simon Morris to national head of dispute resolution.
Intellectual property partner Tim Clark has been promoted to head of the Melbourne office.
The firm also promoted five lawyers to special counsel across various practice areas.
Piper Alderman recently repositioned itself in the market as a multi-service firm, as opposed to a full-service firm, to focus on its key areas.
