4 new Maddocks partners announced

Maddocks has revealed that it has appointed four to its partnership.

The national firm has announced that special counsel Bettina Sheeran and Andrew Whiteside, as well as senior associates James Beauchamp and Kate Oliver have been promoted to Maddocks partners, effective immediately.

Ms Sheeran brings to her new role more than 18 years’ experience in advising on real estate transactions to a vast number of public and private, listed and unlisted clients, including developers and high-net-worth individuals, according to a statement from Maddocks.

Mr Whiteside operates in the firm’s commercial practice where he advises on technology contracting, government procurement and health law. Throughout his career, he has drafted and negotiated a number of significant contracts for all levels of government.

Meanwhile, Mr Beauchamp brings to his new role more than 13 years’ experience as a property lawyer. According to the firm’s statement, Mr Beauchamp has advised some of the largest private and institutional developers in Victoria and Australia on land and apartment projects, from site acquisition through to delivery and completion.

Lastly, Ms Oliver is a trusted adviser to local government in Victoria, the firm said. She provides governance advice to Maddock’s local government clients.
Maddocks chairman Mark Henry congratulated Bettina, Andrew, James and Kate on their promotions.

“The path to partnership is a challenging one which requires perseverance, dedication to the law and an exceptional ability to nurture strong, sustainable relationships with clients,” Mr Henry said.

“Our new partners have worked extremely hard to forge a successful career at Maddocks and we are proud to offer them the opportunity to lead a firm with a 132-year history and a compelling future.”
