National firm appoints new partner

Michael Bacina

A national law firm has announced the appointment of a new partner, who will join its dispute resolution team.

Piper Alderman has revealed it has poached Michael Bacina (pictured) from ERA Legal.

Mr Bacina’s new role sees him join the firm’s national dispute resolution team, based in Sydney.

Throughout his career, Mr Bacina has gained extensive experience in commercial litigation and insolvency matters, particularly matters with a building, construction or technology focus. He has regularly acted for developers, builders, company directors and insolvency practitioners.

Piper Alderman managing partner Tony Britten-Jones said he was delighted to welcome Mr Bacina to the firm, adding that his calibre and market reputation will be great assets.

“The addition of Michael caps off what has been an exciting year of growth for our national dispute resolution team,” Mr Britten-Jones said.


“He is a first-rate commercial litigator and insolvency specialist. His practice, acting on large, complex disputes, complements our existing client base and industry strategy.”

Mr Bacina said his decision to join Piper Alderman was an easy one.

“I am excited and energised by the opportunity to join such a team of strong, highly regarded commercial litigators and insolvency specialists,” he said.

“Piper Alderman is the perfect fit for the next step in my career, where I share the same philosophy of getting the best outcome for my clients in all matters.”

Mr Bacina’s appointment comes after Piper Alderman appointed five new commercial litigation partners over the past 12 months.
