Dentons has promoted 13 lawyers in Australia.

The promotions round includes a new partner, two new directors, and a special counsel.

Elevated to partner Anthony Tesvic, a member of the firm’s banking and finance team in Sydney. He is a leading lawyer in real estate, property, and construction finance, as well as in corporate finance.

“Anthony is a great example of how a very well-trained, hardworking lawyer with a sound client following can succeed at a firm like ours if given the right opportunity and support,” said Tim Lipscombe, senior banking partner. “In banking and finance, and indeed all areas in our firm, we are actively looking both within our own ranks and externally for capable and dedicated lawyers who will be our next senior associates, special counsel, directors and partners.”
