Hicksons has elevated 10 lawyers to more senior roles in anticipation of the new financial year, with eight being promoted to associate, one being made a senior associate, and another being named as a special counsel.

The promotions round is in recognition, the firm said in a statement, of the lawyers’ “continuing success in providing exceptional legal services to their clients and commitment to the firm’s core values and beliefs”.

Danielle Downer has been promoted to special counsel, while Jacklyn Dooley has been named as the firm’s newest senior associate.


Elsewhere, the firm’s eight new associates are Alex Costello, Ashley McIntyre, Clare Thompson, Declan Rainer, Emma Robbins, Jessica Zhang, Laura Charlton, and Ming Hua Ho.

Hicksons managing partner Stewart Cameron welcomed the elevation of the 10 lawyers.

“Congratulations to these 10 distinguished individuals who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to our firm,” he said.

“Their impressive track records and unwavering dedication to the practice of law make them invaluable assets to our clients and our organisation as a whole.”

“These lawyers have demonstrated their commitment to delivering exceptional results and exceeding client expectations across our different practice areas, from workers compensation and health law to commercial litigation, real estate and construction,” Mr Cameron continued.

“These promotions are an important step for Hicksons as we build our presence further in Sydney and Newcastle.”

The news follows Mr Cameron’s recent conversation with Lawyers Weekly about the firm’s biggest challenges moving forward.
