Johnson Winter & Slattery (JWS) has gained a new partner in Sydney.
The national firm has appointed partner Samantha Daly, who came from McCullough Robertson, where she was partner for the last four years.
This is the second confirmed departure from McCullough Robertson this month, with Jones Day hiring partner Isaac West from the firm last week. McCullough Robertson also lost a property team that included two partners to Thomson Geer in July.
Daly’s appointment is significant to JWS because of her expertise, said Peter Slattery, the firm’s managing partner.
“The appointment of Samantha introduces a new practice area to our firm which supports our corporate, property, construction and resources practice areas. Samantha brings significant environmental and planning experience to the firm, and is particularly active advising mining companies concerning their operations and mine development proposals in NSW,” Slattery said.
Daly is the primary legal advisor to the New South Wales Minerals Council in addition to her extensive mining company client base.
“I am thrilled to be joining Johnson Winter & Slattery as the firm's first planning and environment partner,” she said. “I believe my skills and experience in the practice area of planning and environmental law will complement what is already a very strong national service offering to the firm's clients, particularly in the resources, property development, and education industry sectors.”
