Lander & Rogers' Melbourne financial services arm has snapped up a team of seven from Freehills.

Freehills' Natalie Gullifer and Peggy Haines will join Lander & Rogers on 1 June, along with Beth McConnell, Marlene Hewer and three other staff.

Having been a partner of Freehills since 2004, heading up the firm's Melbourne superannuation and financial services team, Gullifer will join Lander & Rogers' corporate advisory group.

Gulliver brings across 15 years of experience in financial services regulation, including funds management, superannuation and anti-money laundering.

A partner at Freehills between 1995 and 2009, Haines is a senior lawyer who has worked exclusively in superannuation and financial services for the last 20 years. She was a consultant to the federal government's recent Cooper Review of the Superannuation System and has also been appointed as a member of the Strong Super Peak Consultative Group. She joins Lander & Rogers as a consultant.

"The firm has been looking to expand its offering in the financial services sector. Natalie and Peggy have together operated a highly successful financial services practice over the past 15 years," said Lander & Rogers' corporate advisory group head Anthony Seyfort.

Lawyers Weekly sought comment from Lander & Rogers but they declined to do so at this stage.
