Quality and consistency through collaboration

Sparke Helmore Associate Katherine Evans is a certified Rising Star

We’re delighted to announce that our Government Group Associate Katherine Evans has been named one of 2020’s Rising Stars by Australasian Lawyer magazine. The list has been compiled to honour the commitment and hard work of the legal industry’s upcoming talent.

Katherine was widely recognised for being a “standout operator with technical, client and practice management skills far exceeding her years of experience”. Australasian Lawyer also mentioned that her “advanced analytical and strategic litigation skills are demonstrated by her developing specialisation in complex appellate work and matters involving intricate statutory interpretation. Evans’ reputation as a highly effective litigator who acts quickly, calmly and flexibly in complex and urgent litigation has resulted in her involvement in proceedings interstate and in various jurisdictions.”

Partner Karwan Eskerie supported Katherine’s nomination and is proud of her inclusion on the list. “We are fortunate to have a truly outstanding national team of Government litigators who are at the top of their game, and it is always wonderful to see their skill and hard work recognised by the wider profession. Katherine is an absolute star and very well deserving of this accolade. The combination of technical skills and emotional intelligence that Katherine brings to her work exemplify what we do best, and are a true expression of this firm’s vision to be a provider that our clients choose for our outstanding people, legal expertise and our ability to connect.” he said. To be eligible, candidates must be aged 30 or under and be able to demonstrate leadership and achievement in the legal profession.

Congratulations Katherine!
