Two lawyers have ascended to the partnership at White & Case Australia as part of a global partner promotion round that highlights the firm’s international growth.

Mai Kuroda and Andrea Reeves are members of White & Case’s global project development and finance team. Both operate from the Melbourne office.

“Our new partners in Australia demonstrate the highest level of expertise in their fields. The admission of Mai and Andrea to the partnership is a reflection of the strong talent and depth of capabilities our Australian based team offers clients,” said Andrew Clark, the firm’s regional section head for APAC projects and dispute resolution.

Kuroda specialises in major development project delivery, particularly those for energy, mining, power generation and transmission companies. Meanwhile, Reeves concentrates on property development projects.

Reeves has tackled all types of property related agreements, commercial joint venture and joint development agreements, renewable energy projects and compulsory acquisition processes. She has worked with government bodies.

With the addition of Kuroda and Reeves, White & Case’s Australia partnership swells to 23. The firm said that this reflects its sustained investment in talent as it increases its presence in the country.

“[Kuroda and Reeves’] promotion builds on the growth we have already seen in the partnership in Australia this year, something I look forward to continuing as we advise on some of the most complex and innovative matters in the market,” Clark said.

The new partners will take up their new roles on 1 January 2022. They will join 57 other new partners that were newly elevated across White & Case’s global offices.

Three others in the APAC region made partner, while 22 lawyers in the Americas region ascended to the role. A total of 32 EMEA lawyers were promoted to the partnership.
