Evyenia Walton (pictured) has joined Lynch Meyer, bringing nearly two decades of experience acting for a variety of businesses, from start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to national and global clients.

She joins from DW Fox Tucker Lawyers, where she served as a special counsel. She has also worked for UniSA as an in-house counsel and for the Department of Defence in Melbourne. She also had her own legal practice for eight years.


Ms Walton’s appointment takes the firm’s partnership to nine and sees more female than male partners for the first time in the firm’s history.

The news follows the firm’s promotion of Patrick Kerin to its partnership in July, its appointment of Vanessa Balnaves to its partnership in January, and also its addition of senior associate Jack Dart earlier in November.

Speaking about the appointment, Lynch Meyer partner Malinda Kuo said: “We are excited to add another female to the firm’s partnership and to have Evyenia help bolster our commercial offering to clients.”

“Her experience, and the fact she had her own commercial legal practice, is a great asset to add to our team,” she said.

“Her expertise will complement the legal services we offer our corporate clients and aligns with our firm’s focus as a leading corporate and commercial legal service provider to local South Australian and national businesses.”
