Clyde & Co names more partners  

Law firm Clyde & Co has appointed five new partners and 15 new senior associates in a significant move to build its Australian operations.

The new partners will be based in insurance across several sectors.

Leah Hewish will operate in the firm’s first-party property and energy insurance practice; Brisbane-based duo Hannes Marais and Jennifer Robbins specialise in professional indemnity matters; Ross Donaldson focuses on casualty and construction insurance disputes; and Anthony Cooke advises on cyber cases.

The move follows the partner appointments of Melissa Tang, James Rigney and Luke O’Kane earlier this year and brings Clyde & Co’s number of promotions for the year to 27.

Australian managing partner Rebecca Kelly says the promotions “reflect the amazing talent of our people, which is essential to provide clients with the high level of service and specialist expertise they expect. 

“They also represent the next generation of senior lawyers and are shining examples of Clyde & Co’s values in action, with their focus on client excellence, working together as part of a global team, and celebrating and welcoming different perspectives and ideas from across the firm.”
