Australian law firm Lander & Rogers today announced its largest ever intake of senior appointments with the promotion of 26 lawyers including nine new partners.

The nine new partners span five different practice areas and have a diverse mix of specialties. Family lawyers Stephanie Doyle and Eleanor Lau, Real Estate lawyers Rachel Hill and Peter Kritikides, Workplace Relations lawyers Kaitlyn Gulle, Sally Moten, and Will Spargo, Insurance Litigation lawyer Rob Muir, and Sports lawyer Amelia Lynch are the firm's future leaders and will bring fresh initiatives to our client offering.

In addition, the firm has appointed five special counsel and 12 senior associates. All promotions will take effect from 1 July 2018.

Lander & Rogers' Chief Executive Partner, Andrew Willder, said, "It has been an incredibly exciting year for the firm — in March we were named Best Law Firm (revenue $50m - $200m) at The Financial Review Client Choice Awards 2018, we became the largest team of accredited family law specialists in any one firm nationally, and as of 1 July we will have our largest intake of senior promotions in the firm's history. These achievements are a true reflection of Lander & Rogers' strength in our highly competitive and continually changing legal market. We are committed to not standing still, to continuing to build a thriving and vibrant business, and to creating the best outcomes for our people and our clients.

"These senior appointments continue to build on our offering in our core sectors of focus — financial services, insurance, government, real estate, and retail and supply chain — as well as the continued growth and success of our commercial and Family Law practices nationally. These future leaders will also play an integral role in cultivating our rich innovation agenda, which builds on our existing client-centric culture.

"Our promotions are an integral part of the ongoing growth of our firm and investment in our people. Many of our senior appointments started their legal careers at Lander & Rogers and I have seen them grow into outstanding lawyers. These promotions reflect our priority to empower our people to become outstanding specialists, and I am very proud that we are able to promote people of such exceptional talent".
