SPARKE HELMORE has announced the internal appointment of four new partners.
Malcolm Cameron has joined the partnership in the insurance, directors and officers team in Sydney. Cameron joined the firm in 2004, and specialises in professional indemnity litigation, instructed by insurers, acting on behalf of a diverse range of insureds, including insurance brokers, corporate directors and solicitors in New South Wales. He also provides specialist insurance advice in relation to property, infrastructure and corporate advisory matters.
Joanne Palamara has been made partner in the compensation team in Sydney and has specialised in personal injury litigation for nearly 12 years, in both plaintiff- and defendant-based practices.
Alison Ryder was made partner in the liability, latent diseases team in Brisbane, has a wealth of experience in personal injuries litigation and has represented both plaintiffs and defendants.
Rohan White has been made partner in administrative disputes in the Sydney office and has extensive experience as a lawyer in the government and business arenas.
National managing partner John Davis said: “Sparke Helmore had a strong year with pleasing revenue of $95 million, up 8 per cent on last year. Our strategic plan provides a framework for us to build on that and aims to achieve targeted growth for the prosperity of our four main stakeholders — clients, staff, partners and the communities in which we operate.
“Our new appointments will help capitalise on that growth and confirm our confidence in the future,” Davis says.
