Telco and regulatory expert Paul McLachlan has joined McCullough Robertson as a partner in the firm's Sydney office.
The former Mallesons Stephen Jaques lawyer and Telstra in-house counsel will lead the firm's telecommunications and regulatory practice which is facing increasing client demand due to Federal Government reforms.
His appointment follows that of former long term Mallesons partner Michael McCafferty who joined the firm in April this year.
"Paul brings a depth of hands-on industry and corporate experience as well as outstanding legal talent to our growing practice," said McCullough Robertson's chairman of partners, Brett Heading. "Paul and Michael will be joining forces again and between them they have telecommunications, electricity and regulatory expertise that is second to none."
Since the start of 2010, McCullough Robertson has appointed two new partners and created 25 new positions demonstrating the firm's growth across its operations in Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney.
