NRF recruits 3 new partners

NRF recruits 3 new partners

Recruit, Norton Rose Fulbright, NRF new partners

Norton Rose Fulbright has announced it has appointed three to its Australian partnership.

The global law firm has welcomed Phillipa Beck and Daniel Vicano as partners in its national construction and engineering practice, and Ann Donohue as a partner in its dispute resolution and litigation team.

Ms Donohue will take to NRF’s Sydney office in her new role, joining the firm from MinterEllison where she was also partner.

She brings experience in complex litigation matters, financial regulatory investigations, class actions and Corporations Act disputes, having advised a range of international and domestic financial institutions and other listed companies.

Ms Beck will join NRF’s Melbourne office in February next year. She returns to the firm following a period of running her own legal consultancy and working as the sole in-house counsel for construction company, Qanstruct.

Meanwhile, Mr Vicano has been promoted to the NRF partnership from his current role as special counsel in the firm’s Sydney construction and engineering team. He will officially join on 1 December, bringing expertise in advising on construction and engineering project delivery and disputes, as well as experience in a wide array of dispute resolution including litigation, adjudication, expert determination and arbitration matters.

“My partners and I have taken a long-term view of the sort of business we want to build and the range of expertise we want to have in our diverse and talented partnership,” NRF managing partner in Australia Wayne Spanner said.

“We are thrilled to welcome Ann and Phillipa, and to promote Daniel, as we move closer to our combination with leading Australian law firm Henry Davis York later this year.”
