Press Release | A new team joins Swaab

We are pleased to announce anoth­er major strate­gic mile­stone has been achieved for Swaab. Effec­tive dur­ing July 2021, a new team have joined Swaab to sup­port, strength­en and broad­en our full-ser­vice domes­tic and inter­na­tion­al legal capabilities. 

These appoint­ments mean the addi­tion of four new staff includ­ing two part­ners, which brings Swaab’s total part­ner­ship num­bers to 17 locat­ed in Sydney.

Swaab was recent­ly fea­tured in The Aus­tralian’s 2021 legal part­ner­ship sur­vey, con­duct­ed by Eaton Strat­e­gy + Search, in which it was revealed as expe­ri­enc­ing the strongest part­ner­ship growth of Aus­tralian law firms over the last six months with 42.7 per cent growth.

Swaab holds an unique posi­tion in the Aus­tralian legal ser­vices sec­tor, as a firm with a full-ser­vice Com­mer­cial and Fam­i­ly law ser­vice offer­ing. Our suc­cess has come from putting our peo­ple and clients first, hav­ing a strong focus on cul­ture, well­be­ing and client ser­vice, which is reflect­ed in our on-going staff and client feed­back sur­veys. Liv­ing the fir­m’s val­ue of Gen­eros­i­ty of Spir­it and ensur­ing val­ue for mon­ey for our clients are more than just plat­i­tudes for us, it’s what sep­a­rates us from oth­er law firms in Aus­tralian and is the key to our ongo­ing success. 

This is an excit­ing time for Swaab, as we con­tin­ue to grow and meet the needs of our clien­t’s. These new strate­gic appoint­ments will serve to bol­ster our impres­sive Lit­i­ga­tion, Insol­ven­cy, Cor­po­rate and Com­mer­cial capa­bil­i­ties. Our new team, for­mer­ly of Gillis Delaney Lawyers, are:

  • Michael Hayter – Part­ner, Com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion, Insol­ven­cy and Bank­ing and Finance, with over 30 years’ experience
  • Ger­ald Carides – Part­ner, Cor­po­rate & Com­mer­cial and Insol­ven­cy with over 10 years’ experience
  • Suzi Sto­janovs­ki – Senior Asso­ciate, Com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion, Insol­ven­cy and Bank­ing and Finance with over 13 years’ experience
  • Renee Hinkel­bein – Licensed Con­veyancer & Para­le­gal, with over 20 years’ expe­ri­ence in Bank­ing and Finance.

I wish to for­mal­ly wel­come each of them to Swaab and I look for­ward to our ever-grow­ing suc­cess”, said Mary Digiglio, Man­ag­ing Part­ner Swaab.

We are very excit­ed by the move to Swaab and in their strate­gic direc­tion. We share the same val­ues in striv­ing to obtain the best results for our clients. We val­ue our per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al rela­tion­ships with our clients and co-work­ers. Our client base and skills have great syn­er­gies with Swaab and I am con­fi­dent we can achieve suc­cess togeth­er”, said Michael Hayter — Partner.
