Norton Rose Fulbright has hired former senior government advisor and lawyer Bill Conley as a senior consultant for its operations in the nation’s capital.
Mr Conley will work closely with the firm’s national head of government and deputy managing partner Michael Greene.
He has spent more than 20 years, the firm said, providing commercial and legal advice to federal government agencies, most notably the Departments of Defence and Finance.
Mr Conley said that he is looking forward to working with his new NRF team.
“Norton Rose Fulbright has a depth of experience in not just government advice, but an important range of services relevant to government projects and operations, such as procurement (including drafting and negotiation, as well as strategic advice), Commonwealth and state regulation and dispute resolution, particularly in the areas of ITC, infrastructure, construction and real estate,” he said.
Mr Greene added that the firm’s extended Commonwealth and state government teams play a crucial role in advising government departments and agencies, which are among its most valued clients.
“We are pleased to have someone of Bill’s experience join our government practice and our Canberra office,” he said.
“We will work with him to keep meeting the needs of Commonwealth and state organisations and those that work in the broader government sector.”
