McCabes Lawyers welcomes new principal

McCabes Lawyers welcomes new principal

Elizabeth McDonald

McCabes Lawyers Newcastle has announced the appointment of a new principal.

Elizabeth McDonald (pictured) has taken up the role, having worked with the firm since 2012.

Ms McDonald specialises in property law disciplines, including rural land, Aboriginal title, water rights, complex easements, property agreements for renewable energy projects and Crown land.

“It is a really interesting time to be working in property in the Hunter region,” Ms McDonald said.

“Our clients are genuinely excited about the revitalisation of the Newcastle CBD and they are watching the property market in the Hunter Valley very closely.

“We are regularly advising on agricultural land transactions and rural land development.”

Ms McDonald said her passion for property law is matched only by her dedication to fostering the next generation of lawyers in Newcastle and contributing to the community in which she grew up.

“The firm has a great relationship with the University of Newcastle. We are very committed to ensuring regional students can access excellent training, high quality legal work and interesting career opportunities without leaving the Hunter,” she said.

“Working with the community is a priority for my team.

“I have worked with NGOs across Australia for over ten years so I have a good feel for how we can add value to organisations that are supporting and developing our communities.”

McCabes Newcastle managing principal Richard Suters welcomed the principal appointment of Ms McDonald.

“Elizabeth is an exceptional lawyer. She works incredibly hard and exemplifies our culture and focus on delivering specialist legal solutions for our clients,” he said.

“We are not surprised that she has built a team of young, enthusiastic and talented people around her.”
