Firm announces 3 promotions


An Australian law firm has announced three promotions, effective 1 January 2017.

William Roberts Lawyers has congratulated Biljana Caceska and Anthea Karvounaris, who have both been promoted to senior associate, and Christopher Forder, who has been promoted to associate.

Ms Caceska is based in the firm’s Sydney office, where she focuses on general insurance disputes, class actions and bankruptcy proceedings.

She has been employed at William Roberts Lawyers since May 2012. Prior to this, Ms Caceska was a paralegal/law clerk at Stephen Smart & Associates.

Ms Karvounaris is based in William Roberts Lawyers' Melbourne office. She has experience managing litigated matters, including initiating and responding to claims and interlocutory proceedings, discovery, attending pre-hearing conferences, directions hearings, appearing at mediation and interlocutory hearings, negotiating settlements and settlement agreements.

Ms Karvounaris began her time at William Roberts Lawyers in April 2012, when she was employed as a solicitor before being promoted to associate in January 2015.

Also based in the firm’s Melbourne office, Mr Forder has expertise in advising on a diverse range of commercial matters, including consumer law, corporations law and banking and finance.

Mr Forder joined William Roberts Lawyers in a graduate position in January 2014, before being promoted to solicitor in October that same year.

William Roberts Lawyers has welcomed the promotions, saying the three have earned their new positions “through continually displaying excellence in legal practice”.

“We look forward to watching their continued development with William Roberts,” a statement by the firm’s head of people and performance, Margot Kindley, said.
