Insolvency expert moves from commercial firm to NewLaw shop

by |
Keypoint Law has announced the hiring of Mark Tierney, who was previously special counsel at top commercial firm Mills Oakley. With Tierney on board, the NewLaw firm now has 22 consulting principals.

Tierney, who specialises in insolvency and commercial litigation, will be based in the firm’s Sydney office. He has extensive experience in liquidations, voluntary administrations, deeds of company arrangement, and personal bankruptcy matters – both for insolvency practitioners and individuals alike.

The move grows Keypoint Law’s insolvency and reorganisation practice, which also includes Michael Rozdal in Sydney and Penny Pengilley in Melbourne.

Tierney, who has a double degree in law and economics from The Australian National University, joined Gordon and Johnstone Lawyers as a senior associate in 2000, before joining Gillis Delaney in 2008 as special counsel. He then joined commercial firm Bartier Perry in 2011 before moving to Mills Oakley in 2014.

Keypoint Law, a full-service law firm, was established by its UK parent three years ago. It offers a flexible and alternative model to senior lawyers who operate their practices to service clients with the support of the law firm.
