Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has recruited three senior practitioners for its Canberra-based regulatory, civil and commercial disputes team.
The three SAs – Laura Crick, Jiadi Liang and Chris Brinley – are joining the firm’s growing national government practice, which has recently acted in the ACCC’s successful pursuit in the Federal Court of Google over the use of personal location data, and ASIC’s highest-ever single enforcement penalty against AGM Markets.
Ms Crick brings with her nine years of experience working with Commonwealth government clients and joins the firm from Clayton Utz. Ms Liang also joins from Clayton Utz and has over six years of experience working with Commonwealth, ACT and private sector clients. Mr Brinley was most recently a federal prosecutor at the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecution.
Speaking about the hires, NRF Commonwealth government practice head Holly McAdam said that the trio add to the firm’s recent growth in Canberra, as well as its “growing track record of successfully supporting Commonwealth government clients in disputes”.
“With these three additions to our national government team, we will expand our complex regulatory, civil and commercial disputes offering at a time when governments are pursuing more regulatory interventions in a range of industries,” she said.
