Effective from 1 July, the promotion of nine new partners will bring the gender balance of the Lander & Rogers partnership to 48 per cent female.

The firm has also promoted 26 lawyers, comprising 12 special counsel and 14 senior associates across its practices, including commercial disputes, compensation law, corporate, insurance law and litigation, family and relationship law, real estate and projects, workplace relations and safety, and pro bono, community and environment.

Lander & Rogers chief executive partner Genevieve Collins said these promotions are reflective of the firm’s stable growth and continued investment in its people.


“We continue to scale to meet client demand across a range of commercial legal specialisations, including insurance, compensation, real estate, workplace relations and safety, and both mergers and acquisitions and equity capital markets, particularly in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as in our national family law practice,” she said.

The newest partners at the firm are Nicola Mooney from the firm’s compensation law practice; David Tink in corporate; Claire Walczak in family and relationship law; Charlotte Adol, Judy Truong and Mylinh L’Estrange in insurance law and litigation; James Hill and Rohan Dias in real estate and projects; and Cameron Hannebery in workplace relations and safety.

The newest partners, said Ms Collins, reflect the evolution of legal leaders.

“The role of lawyers is changing alongside the growing complexity of commercial, regulatory and compliance imperatives facing organisations and individuals,” she said.

“Today’s practitioners must have greater breadth and depth of expertise than ever before, and keep pace with developments in innovative legal and business practice, such as in privacy, cyber security risk and legal process automation and artificial intelligence.”

The firm’s newest special counsel are Nicola McGrady, Adele Moloney, Simon Merritt, Catherine Hillis, Courtney Sims, Elizabeth Nash, Vince Ripepi, Vanessa Turner, Morgan Waters, David Burke, Elise Sugar and Lynden Albiston.

James Cameron, Apryl Geale, Kimberley Graham, Matthew Doyle, Elly Blizzard, Stephanie Elia, Brighid Ervin, Laura Jean, Jenny Kalogiannis, Julia Nettle, Claire Rankin, Emily Russell and Anastasia Stathis have also been promoted to senior associate.

In line with the firm’s continued focus on innovation, Ms Collins said many of those promoted have been integral to transformation projects or new product development for clients, in collaboration with the firm’s client innovation hub and technology team.

“Examples include digitisation of client onboarding, real-time access and reporting, contract automation and automated due diligence, with our new partners driving delivery efficiencies and reducing risk exposure for our clients,” she added.

“We’re pleased to recognise and reward the efforts of our lawyers and other professional staff, and thank them for their continued role in delivering the very best law firm experience for our clients, people and communities.”
