MinterEllison is strengthening the ranks of its super practice with the appointment of superannuation and funds management experts, which the firm said is in response to client demands. In the past six months, it has appointed partner Ruth Stringer and senior associates Guy Spielman and Philip Marquet.

Ms Stringer joined the firm in October of last year (following stints as a consultant at Herbert Smith Freehills and acting general counsel at Australian Ethical Investment), Mr Spielman in November (from Macquarie Group), and Mr Marquet joined Minters late last month from Allens.


Speaking about the growth of Minters’ super practice — which she is now the partner-in-charge of — Ms Stringer said: “We have seen increased demand from clients for advice on investment governance, complex investment opportunities (both domestic and offshore), and proposed reforms to the super regulatory framework, including APRA’s prudential standards. 

“This is coupled with increased media and regulatory focus on how superannuation funds grapple with ESG issues, including greenwashing and greenhushing, modern slavery and cyber security.

“Clients are demanding more from us. With access to the breadth of legal expertise at MinterEllison, including a highly regarded tax team as well as the broader service offering in areas such as risk and IT consulting available through MinterEllison Consulting, we can deliver a quality solution that protects reputation, minimises risk and adds value to their bottom line.

“Clients value the multidisciplinary approach which is available under one roof.”
