The former head of the Sydney office of the international law firm Coudert Brothers has joined Swaab Attorneys.
Michelle Harpur has joined Swaab Attorneys as a partner within the litigation and insolvency team, leaving Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
Harpur joined Corrs when the Coudert Brothers international network collapsed in 2005.
Harpur has acted for major property developers, receivers, liquidators and banks and has successfully represented clients in a number of difficult cases involving joint venture agreements, breach of copyright, negligence actions and regulatory investigations.
"Understandably, we're delighted that such a formidable litigator has joined our firm," said managing partner Fred Swaab. "Michelle has vast experience in property and commercial litigation. She has acted on some of the more difficult and significant disputes in this country."
