International firm elevates Aussie talent

International firm elevates Aussie talent

Promotion, corporate ladder

Ten new partners have been named in the latest round of major promotions at one of Australia’s leading top-tiers.

Allens has announced that 10 lawyers will join its partnership team, with managing partner Richard Spurio welcoming the group into the fold.

“I congratulate each of our new partners and look forward to working with them as our firm continues to grow,” Mr Spurio said.

“This group of outstanding practitioners represents a diversity of experiences and areas of expertise that we believe will be invaluable to our clients.”

Allens has elevated lawyers in six practice areas and four Australian offices in its latest partnership round. The promotions have been described by the firm as a reflection of Allen’s market strength.

The new partners hail from the banking and finance; energy resources and infrastructure; technology, media and telecommunications (TMT); tax; competition and real estate practice groups.

In the Brisbane office, Allens promoted Paul Brittain (banking and finance), Liam Chambers (real estate).

Three lawyers in Sydney, Valeska Bloch (TMT), Craig Milner (tax) and Alexandra Peace (real estate) have also joined the firm’s partnership.

In Melbourne, Rosannah Healy (competition), Michael Park (TMT) and Robert Walker (competition) were promoted.

And in Perth, Nicholas Creed (banking and finance) and Eve Lynch (energy, resources and infrastructure) have been welcomed to the partnership.

“Our new partners are exceptional lawyers with a strong client focus,” Mr Spurio said.

“They also show leadership in areas Allens believes are important priorities including diversity, reconciliation and our pro bono work.”
