Effective from July this year, Michelle Gordon, Kate Donald and Jey Nandacumaran have been promoted to the Corrs partnership.

Ms Gordon, the newest partner in the restructuring, insolvency and special situations practice and based in Sydney, is an insolvency lawyer with specialist expertise in contentious insolvency and commercial disputes. She has extensive experience acting for alternate capital providers, creditors, financial sponsors and financial institutions both domestically and internationally, as well as external administrators and insolvent companies.


Also based in Sydney, Ms Donald has been promoted to partner in the firm’s IP practice. She specialises in large-scale patent disputes and has particular experience in the life sciences sector but also works with clients across the technology and manufacturing sectors.

Based in Melbourne, Mr Nandacumaran is a projects lawyer with expertise advising private and government clients in the management and resolution of complex projects disputes and is the newest projects and arbitration partner. He acts in trial and appellate litigation, commercial arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution and has experience providing advice during the life of projects to avoid or minimise the incidence of disputes.

Commenting on the promotions, Corrs chief executive Gavin MacLaren said: “We are very pleased to welcome Michelle, Kate and Jey as Corrs partners. They are all talented lawyers who will make a strong contribution to the partnership.”
