I congratulate all of our lawyers on their promotions, which reflect and recognise their talents, contribution and continued commitment to our clients,” said Chief Executive Partner David Kearney. “The 37 senior promotions we’ve made this year reflect Wotton + Kearney’s people first culture and commitment to offer our clients deeper expertise.”
