Seyfarth has announced the promotion of 22 lawyers across its eight offices worldwide, including two lawyers in Melbourne and Sydney.

Melbourne-based Justine Giuliani was recently named partner. She specialises in international employment law, advising clients in relation to employment arrangements and industrial instruments, workplace policies, executive employment issues, termination of employment, enterprise bargaining, industrial action, and workforce restructures.

She obtained her LLB from Monash University, and is experienced across all aspects of employment and industrial law.
