Global adds more to Aussie partnership

Global adds more to Aussie partnership

australia

A global law firm has bolstered its Aussie presence by appointing new partners to its Sydney and Perth offices.

Jones Day has revealed that as of 1 January, Jennifer Chambers and Prudence J. Smith will begin as partners in its Sydney office, while Kenneth P. Hickman will conduct his new role in the firm's Perth office.

Ms Chambers and Mr Hickman are part of Jones Day's global disputes practice, while Ms Smith is part of the firm's antitrust and competition law practice.

In her new partner position, Ms Chambers brings experience in advising high-profile dispute matters. Her clients include executive directors, an ASX-listed company and a government agency.

Ms Smith has vast experience in antitrust and competition law, advising clients on a full range of competition regulatory law issues. Matters she has advised on include merger clearances, cartel and anti-competition conduct investigations and litigation, and ACCC immunities, according to a statement from Jones Day.

Meanwhile, Mr Hickman's practice is focused on large-scale construction, public and private infrastructure, mining, energy and transport projects, with particular experience in offshore transactions and disputes, the statement said.

“The admission to partnership for these three outstanding lawyers in Sydney and Perth not only reflects our long term commitment to serving clients with inbound and outbound needs throughout Australia, but also the substantial work we have under way advising on numerous disputes and transactions,” said Chris Ahern, Jones Day’s partner-in-charge of Australia and Japan.

“We look forward to their ongoing and outstanding contributions in serving our clients.”

Stephen J. Brogan, managing partner of Jones Day, said the promotion of the new partners reflects the firm's "ongoing commitment to developing and advancing lawyers throughout the world who have achieved the highest levels of professional accomplishment and who are devoted to advancing and protecting the interests of our clients and the institutional values of the firm".
