Johnson Winter & Slattery (JWS) has strengthened its native title offering with the appointment of William Oxby as partner.

Oxby brings more than 20 years of experience in advisory and dispute work to the firm’s energy and resources practice in Brisbane.

Prior to setting up his own practice in 2020, Oxby spent a decade as an environment and planning partner at Herbert Smith Freehills. His practice involves working closely with clients across Australia’s energy and resources sector.

Managing partner Peter Slattery said Oxby’s experience will support the firm’s growth in Brisbane and nationally.

“William’s deep experience in native title will bolster our credentials and better position us to assist clients with their resources and infrastructure projects throughout Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia,” he said.

For his part, Oxby said he was excited to join the firm, adding that Johnson Winter & Slattery “is known for its strong expertise in energy and resources and is growing its presence in the Brisbane market rapidly.”

“Working as part of a full-service firm with a similar client base is a great opportunity and I look forward to supporting the firm’s ongoing growth in the region,” he said.

Oxby’s appointment follows the recent lateral hires of partners Bruce Adkins and Stuart Clague, who also joined the firm’s energy and resources practice in Brisbane last year.
