New promotions, HDY, Henry Davis York

Mid-tier firm Henry Davis York has announced its latest round of promotions.

The firm revealed the promotions earlier this week, with a strong focus on its banking, turnaround and insolvency practice.

The strength of this practice area for HDY is thought to be one of the reasons for the firm’s merger with global giant Norton Rose Fulbright.

Michael Catchpoole, Noel McCoy and Helen Taylor are the latest faces to join HDY’s partnership. All three work in banking, turnaround and insolvency, based in the firm’s Sydney office.

Ms Taylor will remain a special counsel until she is admitted to practice in Australia, which the firm expects will be in October 2017. She is currently admitted in England and Wales.

Suzanne Berben and Mary-Frances Murphy, also of HDY’s banking, turnaround and insolvency practice, have been promoted to special counsel.

The firm also promoted five lawyers to senior associate in banking, turnaround and insolvency: Agnes Kang, Candy Lau, Kirsty Prinsloo, Andrew Staples and Samantha Walden.

The other senior associate promotions were Nicola Targett in environment and planning, Elizabeth Boden and James Hill in real estate, and Jessica Thurtell in risk and insurance.

“It’s a very special occasion when colleagues are promoted and new partners join the partnership,” said HDY managing partner Michael Greene.

“These appointments recognise the expertise and experience of our lawyers, and the firm’s investment in the development of our people and the continued growth of our firm. Congratulations to all who have been appointed, I look forward to continuing to celebrate your achievements.”
