The appointment boosts the firm’s most senior ranks to 14
Greenwood Roche has expanded its partnership with the promotion of a resource-management expert.
Francelle Lupis, based primarily in Auckland, has boosted the firm’s most senior ranks to 14. She was promoted from principal, a post she commenced when she moved to the firm from Russell McVeagh. She also previously worked in London.
Known for her resource-management work, Lupis assists clients with major residential, water, education, and commercial projects. She also has extensive experience managing large, cross-practice teams, Greenwood Roche said.
Lupis joins Ranui Calman, Mark Hay, Brigid McArthur, Chris Moore, Bob Roche, Lauren Semple, Julian Smith, Anthony Staples, Barry Walker, Jeannie Warnock, Steve Woodfield, Doran Wyatt, and Hadleigh Yonge in the partnership.
Yonge became the firm’s 13th partner in June. In that appointment round, the firm also promoted Kelly Johnson to principal, of which the firm has nine.
