Lawyers Weekly editor Justin Whealing looks at the top stories of the month.
In May, Lawyers Weekly hosted the 30 Under 30 Awards, which recognise Australia’s best young lawyers. We bring you highlights from the event and comments from the winners.
Another feature of this Law Report is an interview with Squire Sanders’ managing partner John Poulsen, who believes staff wellbeing should be built into partner remuneration systems. Poulsen, an outspoken critic of large law firm culture, spoke to Lawyers Weekly in the wake of the release of depression guidelines for the legal profession.
We also reveal that Tony O’Malley, the former Australian head of King & Wood Mallesons and Tim Blue, a former M&A managing partner, have started a Sydney-based boutique.
