Quality and consistency through collaboration

Congratulations to Anella Bortone from our Insurance Statutory Lines Practice in Sydney, Emma Gruschka from our Workplace Practice in Newcastle and Naomi Simmons from our Corporate & Commercial Practice in Newcastle who have been promoted to partner.

“I’m so proud to see the appointment of Anella, Emma and Naomi to our growing partnership. For such outstanding people, from different practice groups, to come through our ranks just demonstrates the depth of talent that we have developing nationally, said Phillip Salem, Sparke Helmore’s National Managing Partner. “In fact, these three exceptionally talented lawyers—who are recognised as leaders in their respective areas of law and who are also wonderful people—have each been part of the Sparke Helmore family since shortly after their admission to practice.”

Sparke Helmore is also proud to announce 8 Special Counsel and 19 Senior Associate promotions.

As advocates of diversity and gender equality, we are extremely pleased to share that 65% of this year’s promotions are women.
