Hall & Wilcox has boosted its national commercial dispute resolution practice with the lateral hiring of a senior lawyer from a global outfit.
Special counsel Scott Meacock joined the firm on 4 February and has been tasked to lead the commercial dispute resolution team in Perth. He made the move from Squire Patton Boggs, where he was a senior associate.
“Scott’s appointment is important as we continue to build our national presence across the country. Scott is a highly focused, team-oriented commercial dispute lawyer who has a strong track record and who brings depth to our team,” partner Graydon Dowd said.
Meacock has extensive experience in corporate and commercial disputes and insolvency matters. His clients include insolvency practitioners, as well as those from the energy and resources, commercial property, financial services and intellectual property, and technology sectors.
Hall & Wilcox said that the new special counsel has a proactive approach to commercial disputes and his successful practice demonstrates attention to detail, strong critical analysis, and strategic abilities.
“I am excited to be joining Hall & Wilcox and I am looking forward to continuing the expansion of the commercial dispute resolution practice across Australia and growing the range of services offered to the firm’s clients in Western Australia. I am genuinely impressed by the firm’s approach and its pursuit of delivering market-leading client service,” he said.
