NOT TO be left out in the season for partner appointments, TressCox Lawyers has promoted seven new partners, two of which have been poached from major rivals in recent times.

The firm has welcomed Andrew Bruton, Dominique Egan, Kotaro Matsuda, Torquil Murray, Hayley Petrony, Greg Thomas and Nigel Watson to the partnership.

Bruton, who is formerly of Clayton Utz, is an expert in energy and resource law, including electricity, renewable energy, gas, mining, petroleum and water law, as well as infrastructure and transport.

The previous chairman of Hunt & Hunt, Watson brings to the firm a practice focused on trade practices law, corporate insolvency, infrastructure projects, water industry-related work and the automotive industry. He also advises professional indemnity insurers in relation to claims against lawyers for alleged negligence arising out of commercial matters.

Watson was also at one time chairman of the insolvency and reconstruction committee at the Law Council of Australia.

Egan and Petrony are both new partners in the health division. Egan specialises in the provision of advice to, and the representation of, health professionals and associations, while Petrony is a specialist in representing a range of health professions in medical malpractice, medical board hearings, criminal proceedings and Medicare Australia.

Fellow partner Matsuda practices in legal risk management, project structuring, international joint ventures, company restructuring, commercial and property transactions, as well as international litigation. According to TressCox, he was the first Japanese citizen to be admitted as a barrister in Australia.

Murray, partner in the property division, specialises in the management and conduct of commercial litigation on behalf of real estate agents and valuers, as well as other professionals, with respect to claims made against them of a professional nature. Thomas has experience in business law providing legal services to a broad range of entities, including corporations, trusts, joint ventures, associations, partnerships, directors and equity holders covering a variety of industries.
