Commercial property expert makes partner at Kensington Swan

Kensington Swan has announced the promotion of Michelle Hill to partner.

Hill is an expert in commercial property deals with two decades of experience, with particular focus on commercial leasing, development projects, and body corporate matters. She regularly advises a wide range of clients including multi-national corporations, developers, property investors, organisations with extensive leasing portfolios, and private clients.

In her new role, Hill joins partners Matthew Ockleston and Paula Ormandy in leading the Auckland property team, which has seen significant recent growth and is part of the firm’s now six-partner strong national property practice.

“I’m delighted Michelle has joined the partnership,” said Ockleston. “She has built an impressive reputation and thoroughly deserves this professional recognition. Michelle will be a huge asset in helping to lead our growing property team in Auckland. Her expertise in leasing and unit titles, and her ability to work closely with clients on a wide range of complex property matters, makes her a huge asset to Kensington Swan and our clients.”

“We’re delighted to announce another promotion to partner this year,” said Charles Spillane, chief executive officer at Kensington Swan. “Michelle has recognised expertise and has proven her ability to develop trusted client relationships. This promotion is further demonstration of the leading property practice that the firm now has.”

Hill is the firm’s fifth new partner this year and brings its number of (all full-equity) female partners to 12.
