Corrs elevates two to partner

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has added two lawyers to its partnership.

David Ellenby and Nick Thorne have been named partners by the top firm, bolstering its senior ranks in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.

Ellenby, who joined the firm in 2007 as a graduate, is part of the firm’s property and infrastructure team. He is based in Melbourne.

Ellenby specialises in a range of property disciplines and is a recognised expert in large-scale residential and mixed-use developments. He is active in the firm’s pro bono program and played a key role in the development of start-up focused service CorrsEdge. He is also a key member of the Corrs steering committee advancing the firm’s digital disruption strategy in the property industry.

Thorne, who moved back to the firm in 2016, works out of Brisbane and Port Moresby. He is a specialist in the resources sector, with clients including multinational and national organisations, which he advises on major transactions and project development.

He is among a small group of lawyers who are admitted to practice in Papua New Guinea, which is a qualification also held by Port Moresby partner-in-charge Vaughan Mills.
