The experienced litigator often acts in complex insolvency, restructuring, regulatory, and serious fraud matters
Martelli McKegg’s litigation expertise has been deepened by the arrival of a new partner.
Jacqueline Lethbridge joined the partnership on 1 June, adding extensive experience in both commercial and civil litigation. She often acts in complex and challenging insolvency and restructuring and regulatory and serious fraud matters.
She regularly represents clients – which include receivers, liquidators, insolvency specialists, corporates, and high-profile individuals – in the High Court, Court of Appeal, and Supreme Court.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Jacque to the partnership given her high profile, technical ability, client-focus and proven ability to deliver great outcomes for her clients,” partner Mike Worsnop said. “The firm’s strategy over the last few years has been to attract the best talent in key practice areas to ensure that we remain a viable and cost-effective alternative to the big firms and Jacque’s arrival is further evidence of that. With Jacque’s appointment we have an almost equal balance between male and female partners, positioning us amongst the leading mid-tier and larger firms.”
Before going into private practice, Lethbridge was a prosecutor and then a defence lawyer for the Public Defence Service. She then joined Grove Darlow and Partners, where she became partner in 2012. She was most recently a director of Lowndes.
