ONE NEW partner and four associates have risen in the ranks at Cooper Grace Ward.

Charles Sweeney, from the firm’s corporate and commercial group, has been promoted from senior associate to partner. He provides wide-ranging general commercial advice to CGW clients, with particular areas of focus including IP/IT, corporate advisory, mergers and acquisitions, and capital raising. Sweeney has previously advised clients in the agribusiness, biotechnology and IT & T industries.

Along with Sweeney, the firm has promoted Nicole Finocchiaro, Chris George, Brad Strahorn and Megan Webb to the role of associate.

Finocchiaro works in the corporate and commercial group, where she regularly advises on business and share sale agreements. She is also experienced in licence and agency agreements; shareholders’ agreements and disputes; and trademarks.

Since joining CGW in early 2002, George has been working in insurance and commercial litigation. He provides legal services to a broad range of local, national and international clients in contract, corporations, trade practices, property, torts, equity, trusts, civil procedure and succession.

Strahorn practises in the insolvency, finance and commercial litigation group, and has expertise in international trade law, enforcement of foreign judgments, trusts litigation, multi-jurisdictional commercial litigation, debt and finance recovery, and insolvency.

Webb is a member of the family law team, and advises on matters relating to divorce and separation; property settlement; child maintenance; trusts and child support; review of child support agency assessments; child residence and parental contact disputes; de facto disputes; pre-marital agreements; and cohabitation agreements.
