As part of a global round of senior promotions, White & Case has elevated an Australian lawyer to counsel in its global project development and finance practice.

Andrea Castle has been promoted by the global firm, alongside 23 others in the firm’s global offices, while 15 lawyers were added to the firm’s local partnership ranks around the globe.

Based in Melbourne, the firm said, Ms Castle “advises project sponsors, lenders, borrowers, subcontractors and government authorities on construction and infrastructure projects including public-private partnerships and other privately financed arrangements”.

“These 39 promotions across 22 offices and nine global practices demonstrate how truly global and diverse White & Case is,” said White & Case chair Hugh Verrier.

“These lawyers have achieved success in their careers because they demonstrate exceptional ability, a consistent dedication to providing our clients with the highest standards of service and the commitment and energy to drive our Firm forward.”

The promotions are effective from 1 January 2021.

In addition to these internal promotions, White & Case has hired six counsel and 10 local partners in 2020, including Tim Neilson, Dan Paolini and Nicholas Rouse as counsel in Melbourne.

At White & Case, the firm said in a statement, “counsel is a role for senior lawyers with significant experience in a particular practice area. The title is used across the firm, in all offices, as an alternative career path to partnership but does not preclude consideration for promotion to partner”.
