Dentons bolsters Aussie practice with new appointments and promos

Dentons bolsters Aussie practice with new appointments and promos

Dentons, new appointments and promotions

The global law firm has announced it has appointed two new partners, and promoted four new directors and seven new senior associates.

Dentons has grown its total number of partners across its Australian offices to 45, following the appointments of Mandi Jacobson and Sally Weatherstone.

Ms Jacobson joins the firm from Baker McKenzie and will take to her partner position in Dentons’ dispute resolution team. Here she will develop her extensive experience with life sciences, including large pharmaceutical and medical device companies, according to a statement from Dentons.

In addition, Ms Weatherstone takes to the firm’s corporate team as partner, where she will focus on the energy and resources sector. Ms Weatherstone has been at Dentons for 10 years.

Dentons CEO Australia Ian Dardis congratulated both Ms Jacobson and Ms Weatherstone, noting that their appointments reflect the firm’s positive outlook for the Australian legal market, and also its focus on gender diversity, with a third of all its partners now being women.

“As a firm at the cutting edge of legal innovation and technology, we’re very positive about the outlook for our profession, and Mandi and Sally both encapsulate the dynamic culture of our firm,” Mr Dardis said.

Commenting on her new role, Ms Jacobson said: “I was particularly attracted to joining one of the youngest, largest and fastest growing legal brands in the world”.

“I have worked locally, nationally and globally, and Dentons is a powerful firm on all these levels,” she said.

Meanwhile, Ms Weatherstone said: “I’m particularly proud to be part of a firm that continues to grow the number of women in the partnership and for which diversity is more than being aspirational.”

As part of its focus on the Australian legal market, Dentons also announced that it has promoted four new directors and seven new senior associates, effective 1 July.
