Clarendon loses property lawyer to mid-tier rival

By Melissa Coade|08 October 2017

A mid-tier firm has recruited a former director of Clarendon Lawyers as a special counsel in its property team.

Maddocks has announced that Mike Steell will join its property team in Melbourne. A former director at Clarendon Lawyers, he has also worked at Gadens and HWL Ebsworth in Sydney.


A statement released by the firm last week said that Mr Steell has worked on acquisitions and disposals and development matters. He has further experience advising strata and land subdivisions as well as commercial, industrial and retail leasing.

Mr Steell was welcomed to the firm by Maddocks’ Victorian property team head Marine Nincevic.


“Mike will be a terrific asset for both Maddocks and our clients as he joins our team with a background in a wide range of property matters,” Ms Nincevic said.

She added that Maddocks is a national firm, whose clients include private and public sector entities.

Maddocks is a proudly independent Australian law firm that works closely with corporations, businesses and governments throughout Australia and internationally. They advise national and international clients across the built environment, education, government, healthcare and technology sectors, from their Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney offices.
