By Emma Ryan|20 December 2018

A national law firm has promoted seven female practitioners, with each taking to their new roles come 1 January.

Barry.Nilsson. has promoted two special counsel: Brisbane-based Anna Clarke and Adelaide-based Cindy Ting, who both work in the firm’s insurance and health practice. 

Two new senior associates, also from the firm’s insurance and health practice, have also been named: Perth-based Georgia Hancy and Brisbane-based Sarah Hull.

Meanwhile, three new associates will also assume their roles on 1 January: Melbourne-based Amelia Beveridge, Lauren Marx and Reena Dandan. Ms Beveridge works in Barry.Nilsson.’s family practice, while Ms Marx and Ms Dandan work in the firm’s insurance and health practice. 


“As a 55-year-old firm, we understand more than most the importance of challenging traditional work norms and the need to embrace diversity and equity in today’s modern world,” said managing director Don Leembruggen.

“For some time now we have embraced flexible working arrangements to enable us to take advantage of the pool of enormously talented practitioners who might otherwise have been lost to the legal fraternity.

“These individuals have shown an exceptional work ethic, technical ability and teamwork, and they should be recognised for their outstanding contribution to Barry.Nilsson.”
