Firm bolsters growth plans with 2 new hires

Firm bolsters growth plans with 2 new hires


An Australian firm has revealed it has expanded its west-side service offering by making two senior appointments.

Wotton + Kearney has announced it has selected William Robinson and Claire MacMillan for its Perth office, in a bid to strengthen and expand the firm's proposition to clients in WA.

Mr Robinson will join the firm's partnership, while Ms Macmillan has been appointed special counsel.

Mr Robinson has relocated to Perth from Wotton + Kearney's Melbourne office. Prior to joining the firm two years ago, he was a litigation lawyer for DLA Piper.

Mr Robinson specialises in a range of claims for key industry clients across multiple jurisdictions in Australia. His practice is focused on public liability, property damage and product liability disputes. 

Meanwhile, Ms MacMillan has relocated from Sydney to join Wotton + Kearney's Perth office.

Throughout her career, Ms Macmillan's practice has focused on construction, professional indemnity and directors' and officers' claims. She has advised on a broad range of commercial disputes, including arbitration and class actions, commissions and inquiries.

In a statement, Wotton + Kearney said it is delighted to welcome Mr Robinson and Ms MacMillan to the Perth office, noting that 2017 will see the firm focus more on strengthening and expanding its core service offering to clients on the west coast.
