Managing partner given Order of Australia
Arnold Bloch Leibler managing partner Henry Lanzer was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia yesterday, recognised for his significant service to the community. 

His contributions, through a ‘range of educational, research and arts organisations, and to the law’, Lanzer said are a testament to the quality of his team at Arnold Bloch Leibler.

“It’s a great honour to be personally recognised.  I feel very fortunate that my role within the legal profession allows me to work with so many talented people.  I am of course particularly proud of our firm and of the results we achieve for our clients and within the community,” he said.

Lanzer, who has led the firm as managing partner since 1999, advises a range of public and large private companies and has been a non-executive director of Premier Investments, Thorney Opportunities and Just Group for a number of years.  Among other roles, Lanzer is a board member of the TarraWarra Museum of Art and is honorary solicitor and advisor to a number of communal organisations.

“This award is a fitting endorsement of Henry’s outstanding abilities and contribution,” said Mark Leibler AC.  “Not only has he guided our firm as Managing Partner for many years, but importantly, he has made a significant contribution in a variety of roles in the Australian community.  Henry is an exceptional individual.  We are immensely proud of him and delighted that he has been recognised in this way.”
