CU link Newsletter

04 July 2011

Welcome to the July edition of CU link.

It's hard to believe we are now into the new financial year in Australia. The past few months have certainly been a busy – and exciting – period at Clayton Utz.

Among our biggest news this month is our move to new premises in Sydney – the landmark 1 Bligh Street development.As the first building in Sydney to be awarded a 6 Star Green Star Office Design v2 Certified rating, our relocation reflects the firm's leadership in environmental sustainability. Our telephone number and postal address will remain the same, but please ensure you update your contact details to our new street address of 1 Bligh Street, Sydney.

As well as our regular features, in this edition of CU link we chat to senior associate Elizabeth Pennell who is currently on secondment to one of the largest law firms in India. Elizabeth shares with us her fascinating experience of life and legal practice in New Delhi and how she has embraced the challenges of her new environment.
