Minters names new Perth partner

Minters names new Perth partner

Mark Williams

MinterEllison has announced that it has appointed a new insurance partner to its Western Australia office, who joins from DLA Piper.

The firm has welcomed Mark Williams (pictured) to its partnership, who brings to his new role close to 23 years’ experience advising on the full range of insurance matters.

Throughout his career, Mr Williams has advised on professional indemnity matters, public liability, product liability, insurance coverage advice, the regulation of health practitioners, and clinical governance in hospitals as well as other health care facilities.

Mr Williams’ clientele is both local and international, and includes insurers, reinsurers, captive insurers, and health organisations.

He takes to his new role after being at DLA Piper Australia, where he was a partner since 2001.

“I am delighted to join such an impressive, cohesive, diverse and enthusiastic partnership,” Mr Williams said, commenting on his move to Minters.

“My decision was an easy one. MinterEllison not only introduces my clients to a consistently outstanding national practice but also gives me the opportunity to collaborate in a top-tier firm that demonstrates its unwavering dedication to the insurance and health industries.

“I couldn’t be happier.”

Minters Western Australia managing partner Adam Handley is equally pleased with Mr Williams’ arrival, saying he brings with him valuable expertise and enhances the firm’s commitment of focusing on strong growth in key strategic areas.

"2016 has been a year of significant growth for our office here in Perth. Earlier this year we launched a new HR&IR practice with the arrival of partners Kathy Reid and Craig Boyle and their team of lawyers. We also saw the internal promotion of Gehann Perera and Kip Fitzsimon to our partnership to further bolster our strategic growth in this market," Mr Handley said.

"In the past five years, we have trebled the size of this office in terms of revenue and people growth, and we have diversified our offering to now provide solutions to clients across key practice areas and industry sectors.

"Mark's arrival adds further depth to our practice here. It's further testament to MinterEllison's clear focus in Western Australia and our vision to become our clients' best partner."
