A former office assistant is one of many new senior appointments announced as the new financical year begins. 

Rosie Stramandinoli was promoted to the role of principal at Griffith Hack, after two decades at the intellectual property law firm. Stramandinoli began as an office junior in 1989 before she became a registered patent and trade marks attorney in 1999. 

Griffith Hack chairman Tony Ward said on the appointment: “We are particularly proud of this elevation. Rosie joined us straight from school. We spotted her ability and determination and gave her the opportunity to obtain the necessary qualifications to register as a patent attorney. Her dedication and ambition have today been rewarded.” 

At Gilbert + Tobin’s banking and finance practice, Duncan McGrath has begun his term as partner, having been with the firms since 2007. McGrath has 12 years of experience in banking and finance, including previous stints at Allens Arthur Robinson in Sydney and Goldman Sachs in London, and has recently advised Westpac Banking Corporation on their merger with St George Bank. 

Brisbane firm, Carter Newell Lawyers, has begun the new financial year on a high with the addition of three new partners, bringing the total partnership to 12. 

Glenn Biggs, Stephen Humphreys and Jonathan Cheyne were all promoted from within the firm to become partners within the insurance, commercial dispute resolution and corporate and commercial teams.
