Chau said that she and Williams were attracted to Hicksons because the firm encourages its team to go beyond traditional legal advice and assists clients with strategy and negotiations.

Chau and Williams join property development and planning partners Siew Tong, Anne Sandeman, and Robert Wilcher in the team.

John Markos, managing partner, said that the appointments form part of Hicksons’ broader strategy to provide an integrated business and legal advisory service that delivers sustainable value for clients.

Hicksons has 166 employees, including 96 legal and business professionals working out of the firm’s offices in Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
