Six new partners in 2012 for Maddocks
6 July 2012: Maddocks continues its growth story with the appointment of six new partners in 2012.
Of the new partner appointments, four were lateral hires from top tier firms and two were internal. Appointments were made across Maddocks' three offices in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney and across the firm's three key sectors – government, infrastructure and services.
Maddocks' CEO Mr David Rennick said the appointments reflected Maddocks continued commitment to offering exceptional client service.
“Ten years ago we opened our office in Sydney to meet the needs of our clients and this year we opened in Canberra for the same reason. In 2012 we have appointed six new partners across our three offices and sectors to ensure we remain accessible and relevant to our clients.
"We know that our clients require exceptional, practical legal advice that adds value to their business. Our focus on three key sectors - government, infrastructure and services allows us to further develop breadth and depth of expertise in these areas, to meet that requirement.
It has also allowed us to retain our senior associate talent, as well as attract partners from the top tier looking for a change and the opportunity to really work with their clients on understanding their issues and how to solve them."
The new partners are:
Simonetta Astolfi, Commonwealth Government
David Hartney, Development
Stuart Weir, Banking and Finance
Norman Lucas, Commercial Disputes
Peter Keel, Commercial Disputes
Mathew Stulic, Construction
