Partner exits for in-house role

Partner exits for in-house role

A Victorian lawyer has left the partnership of a national firm to start a new gig with state government.

Angela Skandarajah (pictured) will leave the MinterEllison partnership to commence a new role as general counsel for a new state body.

Development Victoria formed on 1 April, combing state government organisations Places Victoria and Major Projects Victoria. The new group will focus on property and urban renewal developments.

Ms Skandarajah began her legal career at MinterEllison in Melbourne, starting with the firm as a student paralegal in 1993. She has subsequently held roles as staff partner and managing partner for the Melbourne office. In her most recent role, she served as the national leader of the firm’s real estate business unit.

Minters chief executive Tony Harrington wished Ms Skandarajah well as she departed the firm for the post.

He said the new job would allow the departing Minters partner to pursue her passion for policy development and make a contribution to the “future shape of Melbourne”.

“We’re truly delighted for Angela and wish her the very best in her new role as general counsel of Development Victoria,” Mr Harrington said.

“She has been an inspirational role model and mentor to many younger partners and lawyers. Her contribution to the Melbourne office and to the firm more broadly has been significant,” he said.
