Maddocks names two new partners in latest promotions round

Maddocks has promoted Jessica Reid and Katherine Armytage to partner, growing the firm’s partnership to 83.

Elevated from special counsel, Reid is a part of the consumer markets and franchising team in Melbourne. She has a general commercial and M&A practice, with particular focus on competition law and franchising regulation.

Armytage, who is also promoted from special counsel, is a part of the public law team in Canberra. She advised Commonwealth clients on major procurements and funding agreements, including on probity issues and compliance.

Maddocks CEO Michelle Dixon said that the new partners both played instrumental roles in helping grow their teams by developing strong client relationships and providing leadership in their teams.
