Quality and consistency through collaboration

The Sparke Helmore table was the place to be at the Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year Awards at The Star, Sydney last week (30 May). Everyone was dressed to impress and ready to cheer on our three finalists:

  • Carlie Holt for Workplace Health and Safety Relations Partner of the Year
  • Chris Wood for Insurance Partner of the Year, and
  • Shannon Platt for Intellectual Property Partner of the Year.

While our partners didn’t come away with a win this time, it was a great opportunity to recognise their achievements, their leadership, technical expertise, mentorship and business development skills.

The Awards have celebrated outstanding performances by partners across individual practice areas within the Australian legal profession for four years.

Congratulations to Carlie, Chris and Shannon on being finalists!
