The new addition will be the second external director on the firm's board
Clayton Utz has elected Australian Takeovers Panel member Elizabeth Hallett GAICD to its board.
Hallett will be the second external director next to Jane Halton AO PSM.
“Elizabeth is energetic, incisive, personable and understands the dynamics of law firms. Together with her extensive industry and governance experience, her background is an excellent fit for us,” board chair Karen O'Flynn said.
Hallett joined the Takeovers Panel in 2019, where she will sit until next year. She is also on the boards of several organisations in the financial services, infrastructure and aviation sectors.
At present, she is an independent non-executive director on the Civil Aviation Safety Authority board, ASX lister Lynch Group and NPP Australia. She is also a non-executive director on the NSW Land Registry Services board, as well as a trustee director for SunSuper.
For over 20 years, Hallett was a partner at Norton Rose Fulbright, where she worked not just in the firm’s Sydney and Melbourne offices, but also from its Jakarta branch.
She will commence her three-year term on the Clayton Utz board on 1 January.
