Rostron Carlyle appoints 4

Rostron Carlyle appoints 4

Appointment

Rostron Carlyle has announced it has made four appointments, which includes a new partner.

The firm has named Levi Smouha as the new partner, while Michael Finch, Alan Phillips and Rozélle Bothma have been appointed to associate roles.

Mr Smouha joined Rostron Carlyle in August last year, where he took on the position of head of insolvency. During this time, he broadened his experience in advising insolvency practitioners, creditors and company directors in navigating all areas of insolvency.

Throughout his career, Mr Smouha has worked on a wide range of external administrations involving various industries such as construction, telecommunication services, financial services, food services, hospitality, transport and retail.

He has also acted in bankruptcy proceedings, as well as various insolvency-related court applications, public examination hearings, voidable transaction claims and insolvent trading claims in the state and federal courts.

Mr Finch, who has been promoted to associate, is based in Rostron Carlyle’s Brisbane office, where he advises on commercial dispute resolution, with a focus on the construction industry.

Mr Phillips’ new associate role sees him practise exclusively in criminal defense law, including serious and organised crime. Throughout his career, Mr Phillips has worked up a specialty in advising on major drug matters, including importation of commercial quantities of dangerous drugs, drug trafficking and homicide offences.

Last but not least, Ms Bothma manages the corporate recoveries and debt collection team within Rostron Carlyle’s litigation practice under the supervision of the litigation partner, Paul Rojas. Her new role sees her continue to specialise in cross-jurisdictional debt recovery, insolvency and contractual disputes.
