Greenwood has been named as the firm’s national director (innovation and communication) in its family and relationship law practice.

The firm’s new senior associates are Hannah Baker, Lauren Baker, Madison Barrs, Abbey Clark, Aneesa Clark, Thomas Clark, Ryan Cobain, Hilary de Guingand, Kate Eastaugh, Cassandra Fakhri, Liliana Freeman, Geri Friend-Ngui, Gabriella Janu, Simone Karmis, Kismet Kaur, Nathalie King, Timothy McElhenny, Jeanette Merjane, Kate Mitchell, Anna Murray, Amy Papandreas, Patrick Sexton, Sophie Vagenas, and Isabella Woolley.

Speaking about the promotions round, Landers chief executive partner Genevieve Collins said: “This year’s promotions follow a strong year for our firm as we scale to meet client demand, expand our presence in growth areas in Brisbane and Sydney, and continue to invest in the professional development of our people.”

“Each of our new senior leaders brings deep expertise, fresh perspectives, and will play an important part in shaping our firm’s future.

“On behalf of the firm, we are delighted to celebrate their achievements.”

Elsewhere, Landers has made 14 promotions across its business services and practice group support functions, with a strong focus on technology, innovation, and enhancing the delivery of client services.
