marshalls+dent+wilmoth promotes 4 to senior roles
Melbourne-based law firm marshalls+dent+wilmoth has elevated four lawyers to more senior positions.
marshalls+dent+wilmoth, which has four offices across Melbourne, has promoted Briget O'Callaghan to principal, Alex Di Blasi to special counsel, and Clement Dunn and Marco Angele to senior associate.
MDW principal Jeffrey Pinch said that all four lawyers demonstrate MDW’s commitment to legal excellence, and dedication to outstanding client service.
“These promotions strengthen the foundation for the firm’s continued growth and success. Congratulations to Briget, Alex, Clement and Marco for their well-deserved promotions,” he proclaimed.
Ms O'Callaghan has been moved up the ranks in “recognition and celebration of her determination, commercially astute advice and expertise” in commercial and property law, the firm said in a statement, noting that she specialises in residential and commercial property acquisitions and disposals, hotel and serviced apartment management, franchising, refurbishment, and strata and community title management.
Mr Di Blasi works in the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution team, MDW continued, noting that by virtue of having 15 years of legal experience, he “has a distinguished reputation for conducting and advising clients through complex and vigorous litigation in Federal and superior State courts, appellate courts, and tribunals”.
Mr Dunn, who works with the firm’s “niche” entertainment industry clientele, currently serves as company secretary on the board of directors for the Australian International Documentary Conference.
Elsewhere, Mr Angele has been promoted in the entertainment and commercial team “due to his exceptional skills and knowledge, especially with respect to intellectual property issues and complex commercial transactions”. He recently won the Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 Award 2020 for Sports and Entertainment and was a finalist for the Intellectual Property and Media and Telecommunications categories.
