Piper Alderman, which has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, has elevated 26 professionals to more senior positions in its mid-year promotions round.

Caterina Meduri (dispute resolution and litigation, Sydney) and Craig Subocz (intellectual property and technology, Melbourne) have both joined the partnership ranks.

Ms Meduri’s practice centres around complex contractual disputes and corporate and regulatory disputes, largely in the energy and resources sector and the financial services industry, the firm detailed, while Mr Subocz specialises in information and communication technology procurement, data privacy and information security matters.


Elsewhere, the new senior associates are Harry Best, Samuel Blight, Millie Byrnes Howe, Shaun Clifford, Andrew Cutler, Laura Godfrey, Jamin Li, Daniella Nehme, Emer Sheridan, Egor Serov and Emily Setter.

The new associates are Amelia Atkinson, Mark Dehaini, Alexander Hamam, Nicole Harford, Tabitha Mackenzie, Johnny Petrushnko, Roderick Reynolds, Alessandra Romeo, Daniel Ryan, Daniel Shizas and Samuel Williams.

And in the firm’s business services team, Olivia Sharman was promoted to human resources adviser, while Eric Zhang was elevated to digital marketing and database coordinator.

The promotions are effective as of 1 July.

The news follows recent promotions rounds at fellow BigLaw firms, including five new partners in Australia at King & Wood Mallesons announced last Friday (16 June), the promotion of seven to partner at Gadens last Thursday (15 June), the naming of three new partners at Thomson Geer two weeks ago; the elevation of 18 at the start of June at Johnson Winter Slattery; 35 senior promotions at Lander & Rogers in early June; four senior hires for MinterEllison’s consulting arm a fortnight ago; seven to partner at Moray & Agnew in late May; three new partners at Corrs Chambers Westgarth, also in late May; seven named as special counsel at Clyde & Co in early May; two new partners at DLA Piper as announced in late April; three new partners at Allen & Overy from April; seven to counsel roles at Herbert Smith Freehills in the same week and 10 to partner in Australia a week earlier; and the elevation of 13 to the partnership at Ashurst in mid-April.

Speaking about the promotions round, Piper Alderman managing partner Tony Britten-Jones said that the firm is “continuously looking for opportunities to develop and promote our internal talent”.

“Our partner appointments and promotions reflect the firm’s growth strategy and a healthy balance between external lateral recruitment and the ‘homegrown’ development of our entry-level lawyers through our clerk and graduate programs,” he said.

“With diverse talent and a commitment to collaboration, the firm will continue to provide growth and career development pathways as we provide a platform for our people to flourish.”

“We would like to congratulate everyone on their recent promotions and thank them for their ongoing and significant contributions to the firm.”
