New disputes partner joins Perth office

Allens is delighted to announce Richard Lilly has joined the firm's Disputes & Investigations practice in Perth as a partner from 1 July 2019.

Commenting on the appointment, Gerard Woods, head of the Perth practice, said Richard was a very welcome addition to the team.

'Growing both our national Disputes & Investigations practice and our Perth practice is part of our national strategy. Richard adds to the bench strength of the Perth team and will help grow our market share in the dispute resolution and corporate investigations space. Richard's practice focuses on general commercial litigation and dispute resolution, particularly in the mining, oil and gas and energy sectors, which are core parts of the Perth practice' said Gerard.

'Our WA disputes practice has experienced significant growth in recent years and it has been a priority for us to add an additional partner to join Phil Blaxill and Jeremy Quan-Sing in order to continue that growth. Richard will be a great fit for us, as a dynamic practice-builder with impressive experience and strong client relationships. He will make a significant contribution to our practice in Perth and assist in the development of the next generation of leaders in our Perth disputes practice.'

Richard had been a partner at Johnson Winter & Slattery since 2012.
