After a turbulent two years, DW Fox Tucker is now “re-evaluating” its vision and how it aligns with the shifting working environment post-pandemic — and has made a number of new appointments to reflect this.

“We want to be agile, embracing the ‘new normal’ to ensure our clients can continue relying on us to deliver leading-edge services that keep them ahead of an evolving business environment,” the firm said in a statement.

“Central to this rejuvenation is the affirmation that people are at the centre of everything we do, so we’re reviewing every corner of how we operate to ensure we’re finely tuned to deliver an exceptional experience to every stakeholder in our orbit — through a progressive communication strategy that encourages meaningful connections and enhanced outcomes.”


According to the firm, new CEO Narelle Lee is “pivotal” to the new approach — and she has a managerial career of over 25 years.

Ms Lee has been tasked with modernising the working practices of DW Fox Tucker and is renowned for her people-focused approach, multiskilled organisational expertise, commitment to continuous cultural development, and proactive eye to opportunities or risks.

Evyenia Walton and Lecia Wood have also joined the firm as special counsel.

Ms Walton has nearly 20 years of experience across legal and business positions in the defence, university and commercial sectors and will be part of the firm’s innovation practice. Ms Wood has extensive expertise across commercial litigation, dispute resolution, and insolvency — and will lead the innovation arm.

“One of the most fundamental facts about COVID’s effect on the world is that it has significantly changed how people do business and live their lives. So, as a specialist provider of legal services that respects and enjoys the trust and longstanding relationships built with our clients, we feel it is our duty to adjust swiftly to their changing needs,” the firm said.

“We’ll meet those needs by identifying and embracing contemporary service delivery methods that enhance support systems to safeguard clients’ interests, so they can focus on the important strategic decisions that will deliver positive outcomes for their business.”
