Cameron Hannebery has joined the firm as a special counsel and will be based in its Melbourne office.
He joins the firm from Telstra, where he was a legal counsel for nine years, and worked previously for Deacons (now Norton Rose Fulbright).
Speaking about the appointment, Landers partner and national WRS practice group leader Daniel Proietto said: “We are delighted to welcome Cameron to the team as a senior lawyer with dedicated experience in the health, safety, and environment law.
“As well as supporting our existing clients with their safety needs, Cameron will build a strong practice with clients in both the federal and various state jurisdictions,” he added.
The firm’s WRS team has seen “substantial growth in recent years”, it noted in a statement, with the team having “doubled the size of its Sydney-based team”, including the appointments of partners Tony Woods and Sally Moten.
