The profession recovers: New openings

The profession recovers: New openings

Two major openings are made this week in the legal world as the profession peeks its head out after a long, cold winter during the GFC.

TWO major openings are made this week in the legal world as the profession peeks its head out after a long, cold winter during the GFC.

National financial services law firm Langes+ has announced it will be opening an office in Melbourne on 1 June 2010. This is on top of its existing offices in Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.

A former general counsel will head up the new office. Ronen Atzmon will join as executive counsel, having left financial institution Cuscal Limited.

“Our goal is to be the best Australian law firm for financial services providers,” said Rob Surman, an Adelaide-based partner.

“From the outset, we’ve operated as an integrated national legal practice, servicing clients across Australia. The Melbourne presence is a very important step in our growth strategy.”

In another daring opening, this time in Queensland, the Hon Justice Paul de Jersey AC, Chief Justice of Queensland, has agreed to formally open Macrossan Chambers next Friday.

Three barristers are opening the chambers in Cairns after years in both private practice and at the bar.

Picha Djohan was formally a partner at MacDonnells Law in Cairns and headed up its State wide planning practice as an active advocate. She left the firm to head up the planning, environment and government services group at HWL Ebsworth’s Melbourne office. She joined the Bar earlier this year.

David Denton, S.C. is a commercial silk and has had a strong legal association with Queensland since 1997 having been retained by local practices for their commercial and development clients with litigious and planning matters in Cairns and Brisbane, the barristers said in a statement.

Grant Allan is a land, planning and valuation barrister who has practised principally at the Bar in Brisbane since 1994.
