Corrs Chambers Westgarth has announced a sweep of special counsel and senior associate appointments for the New Year.

New Year promotions will see nine lawyers step into special counsel roles and 16 senior associate appointments at Corrs Chambers Westgarth.

Firm partner and CEO John Denton AO congratulated the 25 men and women in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, describing them as the next generation of leaders at Corrs.

“Each of these lawyers has been recognised for their exceptional commitment to our clients, our firm, their workgroups and colleagues, and I’m very pleased to be able to congratulate them on their achievements,” Mr Denton said.

“These promotions reflect the firm’s strong and consistent commitment to the development of our people and our future leaders.”

From January 1 Franka Cheung, Kate Betts and Alison Teh will be promoted to special counsel in the firm’s Brisbane office.

Marie Costa and Alistair Newton enjoy promotions in Melbourne, while Kieran Egan, Nicole Graham, Catherine Oldenburg and Katrina Sleiman are among the new special counsel group named in Sydney.

Corrs’ new senior associates are: Courtney Fiddian, Daniel Hourigan, Danielle Jansse, Han Yong, Hannah Nichols, Jaclyn Smith, Julie Myers, Kathryn May, Keely Muston, Lisa Johnston, Niall Watson-Dunne, Pritasha Kumar, Sam Wilson, Sue Soueid, Tom Hutton and Vanessa McGlynn.
