Four Aussies step up in the latest round of global promotions

Four Aussies step up in the latest round of global promotions

Natalie Gaspar

Out of 13 promotions to counsel made by a major law firm across its international offices, four have gone to Australian lawyers.

Herbert Smith Freehills has announced four of counsel promotions in Australia.

Employment lawyer Natalie Gaspar (pictured) has been elevated to special counsel in HSF’s Melbourne office, while Dinh Ptok has been promoted to executive counsel in the Melbourne real estate group.

From Perth, Alana Delcanho and Miriam D'Souza have both been promoted to executive counsel in HSF’s projects group.

The Aussie promotions make up about 30 per cent of the global firm’s overall of counsel  promotions, with four out of 13 global promotions given to local practitioners.

HSF regional managing partner Sue Gilchrist congratulated the group on the next stage of their careers.

“This group are emerging leaders of our firm. Their promotion to executive or special counsel recognises their combination of high-level legal expertise and client-focused skills,” Ms Gilchrist said.

“I congratulate each of our new executive and special counsel on achieving this milestone and entering this exciting new phase of their legal careers,” she said.

HSF’s other international appointments were made in offices in Madrid, London, Paris, Seoul, Hong Kong and Moscow.
