The transfer comes less than a year after the lawyer’s move to his previous firm
He comes from Clarendon Lawyers in Melbourne, which hired him as a director last November. Before moving, he spent more than six years as director at Gadens Sydney. He started as a lawyer with HWL Ebsworth in 2006.
Steell, who has joined Maddock’s Melbourne office, specialises in acquisitions and disposals; residential, commercial, industrial, and mixed use property development; and commercial, industrial, and retail leasing. He has acted in matters involving greenfield, brownfield, and established assets.
Marine Nincevic, who leads Maddocks’ Victorian property team, said that Steell will be a “terrific asset” for both the firm and its clients.
The hire comes after the firm appointed special counsel Bronwyn Maynard, who was previously with Henry Davis York in Sydney, in July.
