Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF) has named Australian disputes head Cameron Harvey as the global sector co-lead of its consumer markets group.

He is one of seven newly appointed sector leads announced by the firm on Wednesday. The new leads operate from across the globe in several of the firm’s offices in Australia, Singapore, the US and the UK, among others.

“Norton Rose Fulbright’s industry knowledge is worldwide, as is our choice of sector leaders. Our sector leads are located in the US, UK, Canada, France, Australia, Singapore and South Africa. We are committed to providing exceptional client service across our key sectors around the globe,” global chief client officer Jane Caskey said.

Harvey is based in the firm’s Melbourne office. He was a founding member of NRF’s global board, and was on the board in Australia for six years.

His specialisation is in litigation and dispute resolution, but he also handles matters related to IP and consumer markets. He has been recognised in ALP500 and Best Lawyers.

Harvey will be working alongside co-lead Rosalind Lake, who hails from NRF’s Durban office and is also a newly elected global sector lead.

The other new leads are as follows:

Energy, infrastructure and resources

  • Doug Buchanan – New York and Vancouver

Transport

  • Christine Ezcutari – Paris
  • Duncan Batchelor – London

Technology

  • Stella Cramer – Singapore
  • Rich Zembek – Houston

The seven new appointments join existing global sector leads James Bateson (financial institutions), Anne Lapierre (energy, infrastructure and resources), John Mauel (energy, infrastructure and resources), Jonathan Skidmore (life sciences and healthcare) and Randy Sutton (life sciences and healthcare).

Caskey explained that the firm’s sector approach was mainly driven by its client base.

“Our clients are transforming their businesses in order to focus on evolving opportunities. We need to remain aligned with how our clients are reorganizing and positioning themselves for the future. Our diverse teams have in-depth insight into the legal issues and risks our clients face, enabling us to provide proactive, informed, and strategic advice.”

The move builds on NRF’s history of applying strategic foresight in order to rise to the top of the legal market.

“Twenty years ago, Norton Rose Fulbright differentiated itself by becoming the first global law firm to be organised along industry lines. That strategic foresight led us to become market leaders in our sectors. We went on to gain an even deeper understanding of our clients’ businesses, enabling us to deliver legal solutions that are consistently insightful and innovative,” global chief executive Gerry Pecht said.
