Firm nabs international trade partner


A Melbourne-headquartered firm has announced that a top international trade specialist has joined its ranks as a partner in its litigation team.

Rigby Cooke Lawyers has welcomed Andrew Hudson to the team, who brings with to his new role expertise in all areas of international trade law and customs, as well as government relations, and corporate and commercial law.

“Andrew adds another dimension to our current specialisation in international trade, and transport and logistics at a time when continuous market change is presenting problems for business in import, export, freight, manufacturing and shipping,” said Rigby Cooke Lawyers executive chairman Bill Karvela.

“Andrew’s expertise in international and domestic trade law - having advised on flagship cases involving dumping and alleged underpayments of customs duty, alleged breaches of licence conditions by service providers and litigation - adds significant credentials to Rigby Cooke’s service offering.

“His reputation among his industry peers precedes him and we are very proud to now offer his strong industry knowledge and legal advisory services to our clients.”

Mr Hudson said he is excited to join the team at Rigby Cooke Lawyers.

“I look forward to working alongside Rigby Cooke’s well-respected corporate, litigation, tax and workplace relations teams to deliver a complimentary and full service offering to manufacturing, logistics and international trade clients exposed as a result of global market uncertainty,” he said.

“The move enables me to provide assistance to all those in the supply chain, including in the area of land-side logistics where new heavy vehicle regulation increases potential risks and liabilities.”
