National firm Carter Newell Lawyers has welcomed back two lawyers from the in-house market.

Caren Klavsen has returned to the firm in the role of special counsel after most recently working in-house “for a major energy company”, and Michael Elliot has been re-hired as a senior associate after a stint in-house for Bechtel in Oman.

“Caren’s experience during this time has included significant project and transactional matters and providing operational and commercial advice in respect of a multibillion-dollar joint venture interest. Michael assisted Bechtel in its delivery of the multibillion-dollar Muscat International Airport [in which his] experience will see him work closely with the firm’s construction and engineering clients, many of whom have international interests,” the firm said in a statement.

Discussing the re-hires, Carter Newell managing partner Paul Hopkins said the firm was in the midst of a “real growth period”.

“We are recruiting top level lawyers to join our team and our clients receive the benefits. Having recently been appointed on some major construction losses and class actions, the return of key staff together with these appointments provides great opportunity for the firm and our clients,” he said.

The appointments follow the firm’s hiring of special counsel Julie Bowker and senior associates Nicola Young Berryman and Elise Turnbull.
