Holding Redlich makes 20 senior appointments

Holding Redlich has made 20 senior appointments, including a number of internal promotions and lateral hires at the partnership level.

Including litigation and dispute resolution partner Kimberley MacKay, who Holding Redlich announced late last month to be moving to the firm, it has appointed five partners. Ranjit Singh, who joined the firm’s property and real estate group in Cairns, is its other laterally hired partner.

Meanwhile, promoted to partner are Sydney dispute resolution and litigation special counsel Bede Haines, Brisbane native title and planning and property special counsel Jenny Humphris, and Brisbane dispute resolution and litigation special counsel Marguerite Xavier.
