Specialising in Australian, UK and EU privacy and data protection law, Jon Crass was most recently at Sparke Helmore in the government practice group and previously worked as legal counsel in the UK.
Maria Walsh joins the firm’s Brisbane office, having spent time in-house and in private practice after beginning her career in crisis communications.
Zoe Mortimer will join commercial lawyer Alexandra Geelan in the Law Squared London office. She has experience across both corporate and commercial UK law and will work closely with Ms Geelan to build out the London team and client base.
Commenting on the new appointments, Law Squared founder and director Demetrio Zema said he believes the new team members will play an important role in the future of the firm — which is the only firm of its size to operate on an entirely fixed-fee and flat structure basis.
“Zoe, Maria and Jon each bring specialist expertise and business acumen to areas already in high demand with our clients, and set us up for continued growth,” he added.
“Providing lawyers with an environment that is unparalleled to any other law firm globally remains our core mission, and I look forward to supporting Maria, Zoe and Jon on their career journey with Law Squared.”
