Hicksons appoints new partner
Commercial law firm Hicksons has welcomed a new partner from DWF.
Lachlan Wilson will join Hicksons’ Newcastle office, building upon its growing regional presence.
“Hicksons is delighted to have Lachlan join the partnership. Lachlan’s extensive experience will assist in diversifying Hicksons’ client offering in the Newcastle and regional markets, which aligns to the firm’s growth objectives,” Stewart Cameron, managing partner, Hicksons, said.
Mr Wilson is an experienced litigator with a particular focus on commercial and insurance disputes, construction and insolvency.
He has experience with a wide range of matters including complex commercial and insolvency litigation, insurance litigation, construction disputes and professional indemnity and negligence and is also an accredited specialist in dispute resolution.
Before joining Hicksons, Mr Wilson was the executive head at DWF Australia’s Newcastle office, practising as a principal lawyer in its commercial disputes and insolvency group, and prior to that he was special counsel at Sparke Helmore Lawyers.
“I was attracted to Hicksons because of the firm’s history and its family-friendly and flexible culture. In addition, the fact that the firm is looking to grow in uncertain times gives me confidence for the future,” Mr Wilson said on the move.
“This is an expansion opportunity and I look forward to using my broad experience across construction, commercial litigation and insolvency to grow the firm through client retention and acquisition.”
