MELBOURNE LAW firm Hall & Wilcox has appointed 36-year-old Tony Macvean as its new managing partner.

Macvean took over the reins of the 21-partner firm from Noel Batrouney, who has held the top position since 2001.

“Tony knows how to service client needs at the highest level, as well as how a good business operates,” said Mark Dunphy, a member of Hall & Willcox’s board of partners.

“Tony has demonstrated his skills and abilities in this area over the last few years and he has the full support of the partnership, the wider firm as well as our clients and referrers.”

Macvean joined the firm in 1995, was made a partner in 2000 and is considered a leading corporate and financial services adviser, according to the firm.

Dunphy said his predecessor Batrouney had seen the firm almost double its number of partners since he began as managing partner

“He has … overseen the growth of our practice groups, our lawyers and our shared services operations. Under Noel, Hall & Wilcox was transformed to a leading Melbourne law firm.

“The partnership acknowledges the very important role Noel has played in Hall & Wilcox’s development and success and thanks him for his efforts.”

Batrouney will return to his full-time role in the dispute resolution and litigation practice group and continue as client relationship partner for several of the firm’s key clients.
