McCullough Robertson going from strength to strength with local talent
22 August 2012
Leading independent Australian law firm McCullough Robertson’s appointment of four senior members to their Newcastle office has confirmed that their move to the Hunter three years ago was absolutely the right strategy, and they didn’t have to look far from home to find their talent.
'These appointments are consistent with McCullough Robertson’s plan of expansion, in particular, increasing investment in the resources and infrastructure sectors,' said Partner, Jeremy Kennedy.
Daniel Barrow is highly skilled in Construction law and will be taking up the position of Special Counsel for McCullough Robertson.
Dan completed a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) at Newcastle University and worked as a project manager/construction manager before commencing his career as a construction lawyer.
Dan also holds a Master of Laws. Dan’s skills complement the existing service provided by McCullough Robertson and enable McCullough Robertson to service clients’ needs from planning through to project completion.
Senior Associates Alicia Kuczera and Kate Addinall are specialist environmental and planning lawyers with a focus on the mining, energy and resources sector having over eleven years of legal experience between them, acting for major resources and industrial clients in New South Wales and overseas.
Kate is returning home to Newcastle having recently completed her Masters of Environmental Law from the University of Sydney where she focused her studies on climate change and energy:
'The opportunity to work with a leading firm with an office in Newcastle, who is offering excellent alternatives to business and resources clients in the Hunter and have a wonderful lifestyle is a dream come true.'
Choosing to return home to Newcastle was an obvious choice says Alicia:
'I was attracted to McCullough Robertson’s breadth of expertise, including providing quality legal services to the resources sector.'
Laura Rodger started with McCullough Robertson as a research clerk and worked her way through the Graduate Program with the firm. Laura’s appointment to senior associate and her specialisation in resources and construction law is a perfect fit for the firms plan for growth in the area.
