It’s not easy filling the shoes of a predecessor who worked as CEO for 14 years, but Jackson McDonald’s Malcolm Shelton-Agar has done an admirable job since taking the reins from John McLean last year at WA’s biggest independent firm. Shelton-Agar came into the firm having worked at Singapore law firm Allen & Gledhill, where he was chief operating officer. He had also spent more than a decade at then DLA Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper). Since joining Jackson McDonald, Shelton-Agar has implemented new strategies for advancing the firm.
