The newly promoted lawyer is currently on maternity leave
Seyfarth Shaw has promoted another lawyer to partner in Australia.
Sarah Goodhew has joined the international firm’s partnership. The Sydney-based lawyer is currently on maternity leave and the firm said that she will continue to work closely with partner Paul Cutrone once she returns later this year.

Seyfarth’s first partner promotion in Australia is Erin Hawthorne, who was elevated to the partnership last year.

Seyfarth said that she regularly handles regulatory investigations, health and safety prosecutions, and coronial inquests.
“Having worked in workplace health and safety law for nearly 15 years, she has developed extensive knowledge in this field. Since joining Seyfarth she has become known for her practical, realistic and commercially sound advice to clients,” Perry said.
