We are proud to announce that Swaab Attor­neys Man­ag­ing Part­ner Mary Digiglio, has been short-list­ed as a final­ist in this year’s Lawyers Week­ly Women in Law Awards in the Exec­u­tive of the Year category.

This recog­nis­es Mary’s stew­ard­ship of our firm that is pro­duc­ing dou­ble dig­it growth and see­ing the firm wel­come a num­ber of new clients from the SME, start­up, gov­ern­ment and high net worth sectors.

Mary’s tenure comes at a time of pro­found change due to the dis­rup­tive forces affect­ing our clients and our pro­fes­sion. In response, she com­mis­sioned the Swaab Dis­rup­tion ini­tia­tive to ensure Swaab Attor­neys can antic­i­pate and respond to the chal­lenges fac­ing our clients and help them embrace these changes and secure their future.

This recog­ni­tion high­lights Mary’s deep com­mit­ment to Swaab’s peo­ple. She leads a diverse team with over 39% female rep­re­sen­ta­tion at the part­ner and senior man­ag­er lev­els and over 30% of our peo­ple born over­seas. Mary is com­mit­ted to embed­ding a cul­ture focused on the well-being of our peo­ple, par­tic­u­lar­ly since tak­ing on a role as Direc­tor of the Tris­tan Jep­son Memo­r­i­al Foundation.

Mary has also con­tin­ued the firm’s com­mit­ment to part-time and flex­i­ble work across all lev­els of the firm, and estab­lished a tone that is con­struc­tive, sup­port­ive, respect­ful and kind.

Under­pin­ning the suc­cess of these ini­tia­tives has been Swaab’s Unlock your Poten­tial’ pro­gram, which earned us a final­ist slot in this year’s Lawyers Week­ly Aus­tralian Law Awards.

We look for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing Mary’s suc­cess at the finals lat­er this month.
