The change in leadership comes as the firm celebrates its 10-year anniversary in Sydney
Squire Patton Boggs (SPB) has welcomed a new managing partner for its Sydney office as inaugural managing partner Campbell Davidson, who has led the office since its launch 10 years ago, steps aside.
Graeme Slattery ascends to the helm as the firm celebrates the milestone anniversary. Davidson praised the litigation specialist, who heads up the firm’s Australia litigation practice, expressing his confidence that Slattery’s “expertise and energy will position our office for its next stage of growth.”
“Having worked closely with Graeme both as a colleague and on client matters, I have seen first-hand the enthusiasm, ability and commitment to the firm’s values that he will bring to his leadership role in Sydney,” said Tony Chong, Perth managing partner and head of the Australian corporate practice and Asia desk.
Slattery, whose work has seen him tackling complex corporate commercial disputes, public and administrative law matters, and regulatory investigations and prosecutions, said that he was looking forward to building on the growth and development experienced by the Sydney office under Davidson’s leadership.
SPB chair and global CEO Mark Ruehlmann described the firm’s Sydney branch as “an important part of our global offering to clients, as is our broader practice across Australia.” He lauded Davidson’s time at the helm.
“Since launching a decade ago, our growth has been steady and focused on developing a diverse practice, hiring talented people and building a strong culture. I would like to express my gratitude to Campbell for his leadership as our founding managing partner in Sydney and thank Graeme for taking on this important role as we move into our next phase of growth,” Ruehlmann said.
