Leading independent law firm, Johnson Winter Slattery, has appointed Lucas Wilk as a partner based in its Brisbane and Perth offices. Lucas joins the firm from Jones Day and has more than 20 years’ experience.
Lucas has a market leading reputation for representing clients in large litigation and arbitration, with a focus on the energy, resources and infrastructure sectors. He also has extensive experience in complex insolvency matters.
Commenting on his arrival, JWS Managing Partner Jeremy Davis said, “Lucas is a recognised leader for litigation, arbitration and insolvency work and it is great to have a lawyer with his high profile join our team. We have seen a significant uptick in disputes and insolvency work and Lucas will deepen the strength of our team.”
In joining the team, Lucas said, “JWS has built a strong reputation in the market for disputes and insolvency representation. I am delighted to join a team with such high calibre lawyers and clients.”
