HWL Ebsworth unveils board of partners

HWL Ebsworth has cemented its new leadership and governance structure with its new board of partners.

Adelaide corporate and commercial partner Jamie Restas is set to lead the board as chair. The firm announced the new structure last month, and a seven-seat board was established to ensure diversity in the backgrounds, experiences and skillsets of its members.

Each practice group and each office could have no more than two representatives. Moreover, each gender could have no more than four representatives.

In line with these criteria, the following partners were elected (excluding Restas):

  • Clare Raimondo (workplace relations and safety, Adelaide)
  • Jane Wild (construction and infrastructure, Sydney)
  • Paul Wilson (property, Perth)
  • Peter Dreher (corporate and commercial, Melbourne)
  • Philip Battye (insurance, Melbourne)
  • Sonya Kroon (construction and infrastructure, Sydney)

The board members will officially take up their new roles on 1 July, at the same time as new CEP Russell Mailler and new CEO Kris Hopkins.

“I very much look forward to working with the new board of partners, Kris, and Russell with a view to continuing the success and growth of the firm, noting that we will preserve the strengths in its management and operations”, Restas said.
