Norton Rose Australia has promoted five lawyers to the partnership, as part of global partnership promotions at the legal group.
In total the firm promoted 36 lawyers across London, Canada, Latin America, South Africa (six directors) and Australia. This represents twice as many as last year. The promotions were made primarily across Norton Rose Group’s three global practice groups of corporate (11 promotions), litigation and dispute resolution (10 promotions) and banking and finance (nine promotions) with a further three in antitrust, competition and regulatory, two in intellectual property and one cross-specialist. Almost half of the promotions made this year (44 percent) are women.
In Australia the promotions include Vince Baudille, a real estate and corporate lawyer in Sydney;
Siobhan Flores-Walsh, an occupational health, safety and litigation/dispute resolution lawyer in Sydney; Michael McKee, a real estate and corporate lawyer in Perth; Jehann Mendis, a corporate advisory lawyer in Perth and Noni Shannon, a corporate advisory lawyer in Canberra.
“These are lawyers who will bring tremendous benefits to our partnership,” said Wayne Spanner, managing partner, Norton Rose Australia. “All five work across our key industry sectors including energy, infrastructure, mining and commodities, and financial institutions.”
Additionally, Norton Rose Group has made 49 lateral partner hires internationally since 1 May 2011.
