Australian firm HWL Ebsworth Lawyers has taken on a new litigation partner in Sydney.
Greg Lewis is moving over from the Sydney office of K&L Gates, where he was special counsel.
Lewis’ practice focuses on complex insolvency-related litigation for banks, insolvency firms, and corporate clients, but he also acts for contractors and financiers on their construction and engineering-related commercial disputes.
Lewis joined the former Middletons, the Australian firm that last year merged with Pittsburgh-based K&L Gates, as special counsel in 2011. Prior to that he had spent eight years away from law working as a private business consultant. Before leaving private practice, Lewis had worked for 18 years at the former Mallesons Stephen Jacques, finishing his time there as a partner.
HWL Ebsworth has just over 200 lawyers, including 70 partners, in Sydney. The firm employs about 470 lawyers across six offices in Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, North West Sydney, Perth, and Sydney.
