HWL Ebsworth Lawyers has added a partner in Sydney.

Rebecca Mohr is joining the firm from the Sydney office of Norton Rose. She advises on a variety of corporate and commercial matters, with a particular focus on franchising, distribution, and licensing law. She also represents Australian manufacturing and retail companies looking to enter foreign markets.
 
Concurrent with her partnership at Norton Rose, Mohr served as senior foreign legal counsel at the firm’s former Indonesian alliance partner Brigitta I. Rahayoe & Partners between 2007 and 2011. Norton Rose ended that alliance in 2011 in order to form a new one with Susandarini & Partners.
 
Mohr joined Norton Rose through its merger with Deacons Australia in 2010. She joined Deacons as an associate in 2003 and became a partner in 2005. She began her legal career as an associate at the former Blake Dawson, now Ashurst.
 
HWL Ebsworth now employs about 470 lawyers, including 148 partners, in five offices in Australia.*
