HDY makes triple hire

HDY makes triple hire

Henry Davis York

Henry Davis York has announced it has brought on three dispute resolution specialists, effective next month.

HDY will welcome Melanie McKean (pictured) as a partner on 1 May, Rosalie Byrne as special counsel on 9 May and Megan Knight as special counsel on 22 May.

All three of the impending HDY staff have worked together for more than five years on a wide range of matters, including litigation, dispute resolution and workplace investigations.

Their recent experience includes the defence of litigated and unlitigated claims in the ACT and federal jurisdictions. They have helped Commonwealth and corporate clients with complex multi-party proceedings and groups of claims requiring coordination and collaboration across a number of Commonwealth entities, according to a statement from HDY.

HDY managing partner Michael Greene welcomed the three to HDY, saying the will enhance the firm’s Canberra office tremendously.

“Melanie, Megan and Rosalie will provide on the ground dispute resolution and investigation depth and capability, which is important to grow our Commonwealth government practice,” he said.

“They will enhance the firm's government sector strategy through their strong relationships with Commonwealth departments. This will both complement our existing work and provide us with new opportunities.”

These three appointments come after rapid growth at HDY’s Canberra office during the last year.

Recently, Debra Tippett and Ben Fuller were appointed as partners, Angie Freeman was appointed as special counsel, and Rachel Bannikoff and Chris Headon were appointed as senior associates.
