The firm also appointed a new partner, Geraldine Johns-Putra, in the corporate group in its Hong Kong office, and also appointed seven special counsel and 27 senior associates across its offices in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
The firm’s chief executive partner, John Weber, said the appointments reflect the firm's commitment to continuing to invest in the future of the business: “We are bringing great talent into the partnership and rewarding outstanding contributions of staff through promotion to special counsel and senior associate. These appointments will assist in positioning the firm for the future."
All the partner appointments were internal promotions.
Minters recently appointed its new chairman, Bruce Cowley, who took up his new role on 1 July, but the firm also just lost one if its Canberra partners to Squire Sanders’ Darwin practice.
