Lander & Rogers poaches insurance partner
Lander & Rogers has recruited a corporate insurance partner from a rival mid-tier firm.
Mark Lindfield (pictured) has joined the Sydney office of Australian firm Lander & Rogers as a partner. He was previously a partner at DibbsBarker, where he established the firm’s front-end insurance practice, according to a statement from Lander & Rogers. He also spent 10 years at Allens, helping to grow its non-contentious insurance practice.
Mr Lindfield said he was drawn to Lander & Rogers’ longstanding interest in and commitment to the insurance sector, as well as the quality of its work and people.
“Lander & Rogers provides me with a platform to service insurance clients on all their legal needs, from mergers and acquisitions to restructuring and licensing, from product development and distribution through to regulatory investigations and disputes.
“It is a specialist area of practice and expertise, and Lander & Rogers is totally committed to the sector, which is a real drawcard for me,” he said.
Jackie Solakovski, head of Lander & Rogers’ corporate group, welcomed Mr Lindfield’s appointment and said it would support the growth of the firm’s insurance and financial services offering.
“Corporate insurance is a very specialised area and Mark’s experience, along with his knowledge of the insurance regulatory landscape, add depth to our growing corporate insurance practice, as well as complementing our market-leading insurance law and litigation practice,” she said.
