Two more lateral partner appointments mark seven for Norton Rose Fulbright
Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright has announced the appointment of two new partners, nabbed from outside the firm.

Helene Lee and Adrienne Parker have been appointed as partners in the firm’s Melbourne and Perth offices respectively.

The appointments mark seven new partners for Norton Rose Fulbright in Australia in 2014, including four lateral appointments. The other lateral partners appointed this year are Keira Brennan (Brisbane) and Ray Giblett (Sydney).
Lee, the new Melbourne partner, is a respected employment and labour law specialist.
She has significant private practice experience with Corrs Chambers Westgarth and Harmers Workplace Lawyers, as well as in-house experience with Telstra.
During her six years at Telstra, including three as General Counsel, HR Legal Services, Lee was responsible for managing all legal issues concerning the company’s employees.

Parker, the latest Perth partner, specialises in major construction, engineering and resources projects work, and was previously a partner at Clayton Utz.

She is a senior practitioner well known to the Perth market, and has focussed on matters involving traditional procurement, alliance or public private partnership, and has also acted in many large-scale complex disputes.

Wayne Spanner, managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright Australia, says the new partners would help cement the firm’s employment and labour, and construction and major projects teams as leaders in the domestic and regional markets.

“Our national employment and labour law team is already a dominant performer. With Helene’s mix of private practice and in-house experience, this will only continue,” he says. “Adding someone of Adrienne’s experience and skill will also be of benefit to both our national construction and major projects practice as well as that of our Perth office.”
