Seyfarth Shaw opens

By Reporter|12 December 2013

Seyfarth Shaw has officially opened its doors in Sydney and Melbourne, six months after the global firm announced its intention to launch in Australia.

Headquartered in Chicago, Seyfarth revealed that it would be opening offices to Australia in June when it poached eight partners from three of Australia’s top law firms.

The partners, all employment and industrial relations specialists, were: Darren Perry, Chris Gardner, Justine Turnbull, Ben Dudley and Luke Edwards from Herbert Smith Freehills; Ashurst’s Rachel Bernasconi and Michael Tamvakologos, and Henry Skene from Arnold Bloch Leibler.

Darren Gardner (pictured), chair of Seyfarth’s international practice, said: “We are very excited at the opportunity to deliver our specialist offering to clients across Australia and into the Asia-Pacific region more generally.”
