WA firm announces four new hires

WA firm announces four new hires

A Perth-based firm has appointed a special counsel, associate and two solicitors in its latest round of hires.

HHG Legal Group (HHG) recently announced that special counsel Marcus Hodge (pictured), associate Lucy Ferreira and solicitors Bronte Lenigas and Lauren Copley have joined the team.

Mr Hodge has in-house and private practice experience. Throughout his career, he has advised on commercial, infrastructure, utilities, acquisitions and front-end construction work matters.

The former architect is a board member of the Great Southern Master Builders Association and sits on a number of other boards and committees in WA. In 2002, Mr Hodge worked as a senior in-house adviser with the Australian Stock Exchange, which later led to his appointment with construction and services company Clough Ltd as senior legal counsel.

Ms Ferreira has represented clients in matters relating to succession planning, estate administration, trusts, asset protection, business structure set-up and superannuation. She regularly advises on the implementation of multigenerational succession plans and asset protection.

Ms Ferreira also has experience assisting the Family Court of WA in relation to discretionary trusts adjunct to divorce proceedings, renunciation and exclusion of beneficiaries, releases and indemnities.

New solicitor Ms Lenigas was admitted as a lawyer at the end of 2014 after graduating from the University of Western Australia with a double degree in law/arts. She has experience drafting court documents and pleadings, and appearing before WorkCover WA and the District Court.

Ms Copley, joins the firm’s commercial and litigation team as a solicitor. She was admitted to practice last year after completing her practical legal training (PLT) with the Legal Aid WA Domestic Violence Legal Unit.

Ms Copley brings “knowledge in contract management and high level contract negotiation,” HHG Legal Group said.
