Our People at Clayton Utz
How would you describe the legal talent we have at Clayton Utz?
Linda Evans, Partner - Competition
You are allowed to express yourself as an individual and diversity is respected, recognised and indeed encouraged and I think that really adds to the culture of Clayton Utz and provides a good environment for tolerance, respect and an appreciation for the things that really make a great law firm.
Gary Best, Partner - Real Estate
We attract the very best people. We attract people who are challenged and ambitious, who want to succeed, who want to not only achieve excellence in the law, but want to apply that excellence to the commercial world.
Kate Jordan, Partner - Media & Telecommunications
We have a diverse range of talent here at Clayton Utz but I think the unifying feature is that people are really passionate about what they do and they really enjoy it.
Niro Ananda, Partner - Private Equity
The best way to describe them is a bunch of very bright, passionate people who are very personable, very committed to what they do. I think it's a great bunch of people that we have here at Clayton Utz.
Doug Jones, Partner - Construction & International Arbitration
They understand business. They understand that they're not just there to be lawyers but rather to solve problems for clients. Another nice aspect of our legal team is that they're committed to making a difference outside the life of commercial law, a very substantial commitment to making a difference in the community through Pro Bono and other work, which I think produces rounded personalities that make them better lawyers for clients.
Kathy Santikos, Partner - Banking & Financial Services
Clayton Utz boasts some of the best lawyers in Australia. Across all four departments we have several market leaders in their fields of expertise and this is very apparent from the fact that we are currently working on the most high-profile, complex transactions in the market.
