Clutz announces EOFY promotions

Clutz announces EOFY promotions


National firm Clayton Utz has revealed almost 50 special counsel and senior associate promotions across its offices.

The firm promoted 16 special counsel and 32 senior associates on 1 July, in addition to two senior associates whose promotions took effect on 1 January.

The key sectors the firm focused on were corporate, M&A and capital markets, with six special counsel and five senior associates, and major projects and construction, with three special counsel and five senior associates.

In its corporate, M&A and capital markets practice, Clayton Utz welcomed special counsel Jasmin Singh (pictured) in Brisbane. Ms Singh was a winner in the Energy and Resources category at the 2014 Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 awards.

Liz Humphry has been promoted to special counsel in the Perth team, as have Klay Brown, Adam Foreman, Trish Paton and Jasmine Sprange in Sydney.

The firm’s new major projects and construction special counsel are Jo Brook, Jack Fan and Vanessa McBride, all of whom work in the firm’s Sydney office.

Clayton Utz also promoted special counsel across a range of other practice areas: Vanessa Pallone (Sydney) in banking and financial services; Chris Erfurt (Brisbane) in commercial litigation; Adrian Kuti (Sydney) in competition; Walid Sukari (Sydney) in IP and technology; Eva Oraham (Sydney) in real estate; Amber Agustin (Melbourne) in tax; and Jess Morath (Sydney) in pro bono.

“We invest heavily in the development of our people, so it’s wonderful to see 50 of our lawyers achieve such a significant professional milestone,” said Kate Jordan, the firm’s deputy chief executive partner, people and development.

“They are exceptional lawyers, committed to our clients and the firm, and very deserving of their promotions.”
