Bartier Perry promotions

A Sydney-based firm has appointed three new partners, one senior associate and four new associates across five practice areas. 

Bartier Perry chief executive Riana Steyn said the last 12 months has seen significant growth across the firm, which will be boosted by the new promotions. 


“These appointments reflect that, but equally the firm’s ongoing commitment to aligning growth with our culture,” Ms Steyn commented. 

The firm has promoted Linda Mackinlay, Steven Griffiths and Peter Kramer to partner across the workplace law and culture practice, property and construction and in private clients, respectively. Within the insurance practice area, Sherilyn Dunkley has been moved into a senior associate position. 


Emma Boyce, Malcolm Griffin, Claire Perry and Jeremy Tjeuw were promoted to associate. Other promotions within the firm include Alicia Burdett to finance supervisor and Kasun Bulathsinghala to senior systems administrator, both in shared services. 

Ms Steyn said the firm has been appointed or reappointed to a number of new legal panels through its focus on core strengths. 

“We’ve taken a very strategic approach as to what work we are chasing and pleasingly it’s resulted in an incredible tender success rate in the last year and importantly opportunities for our associates in particular,” Ms Steyn said.

“We’ll also continue the programs and commitment we have in place to bring more women through and into partnership and that ongoing focus is reflected in these appointments.”
