21 June 2022 By Jerome Doraisamy

National law firm Mills Oakley has named seven new partners and elevated 41 other lawyers.

The latest promotions round, Mills Oakley chief executive John Nerurker (pictured) noted, sees the firm’s partnership ranks swell to 130-strong, on top of bolstering the number of special counsel, senior associates and associates.


Such growth demonstrates, he argued, that the firm is “cementing” its place as a leading firm in Australia.

The firm’s newest partners are Damian Harriss (family law, Melbourne), Edwina Reynolds (property, Brisbane), Maurice Lynch (insurance, Sydney), Natalie Butler (government and administrative law, Canberra), Nicola Murphy (toxic torts, Sydney), Rebecca Roberts (toxic torts, Perth) and Lisa Thomas (national practice manager).
