Press Release | New Senior Pro­mo­tions for Swaab

We are pleased to announce the pro­mo­tion of James Skel­ton to Part­ner in our Com­mer­cial, IP & Tech­nol­o­gy Law team, Ryan Gan­non to Part­ner in our Fam­i­ly Law team and Madeleine Urmoneit to Senior Asso­ciate in our Com­mer­cial & Prop­er­ty Law team effec­tive 1 Jan­u­ary 2023.

It is tru­ly reward­ing to be able to recog­nise the fol­low­ing home grown tal­ent with well-deserved promotions: 

  • James Skel­ton appoint­ed to the posi­tion of Part­ner of Swaab. James start­ed at Swaab as a grad­u­ate in March 2015. Through his loy­al­ty, his com­mit­ment and hard work, James has become a trust­ed advi­sor to his clients and reli­able col­league and con­trib­u­tor through­out the Firm. James is a high­ly respect­ed Com­mer­cial, IP and Tech­nol­o­gy Lawyer and has been recog­nised by many exter­nal organ­i­sa­tions for his con­tri­bu­tion to the legal pro­fes­sion. James was recent­ly recog­nised by Aus­tralasian Lawyer 2022 as a Ris­ing Star and has made us proud on many occa­sions. It is with much pride that the part­ner­ship wel­comes James to the part­ner­ship, par­tic­u­lar­ly giv­en his tenure with the Firm since his graduation.
  • Ryan Gan­non appoint­ed to the posi­tion of Part­ner of Swaab. Ryan joined Swaab in 2018 after work­ing with us on a trans­ac­tion (in which he was rep­re­sent­ing the oth­er par­ty). Ryan is a very well-respect­ed and high­ly regard­ed Fam­i­ly Lawyer, recog­nised for 3 con­sec­u­tive years by Doyles as a Ris­ing Star. Ryan is sought after by many look­ing for a first-rate Fam­i­ly Lawyer. He is high­ly regard­ed by his team and by clients he ser­vices. Ryan has a style that sets him apart from many. The part­ner­ship is very excit­ed and pleased about Ryan’s well deserved appointment.
  • Madeleine Urmoneit appoint­ed to the posi­tion of Senior Asso­ciate of Swaab. Mad­die joined us ear­ly in 2021. She has worked in the legal indus­try for 12 years. Mad­die is an out­stand­ing, metic­u­lous and mod­el lawyer, with a pos­i­tive atti­tude, very impres­sive work eth­ic, supe­ri­or client inter­ac­tion skills and is a delight­ful young woman (who is extreme­ly mod­est). Mad­die has been sup­port­ing Part­ner, Julie Briscoe, pri­mar­i­ly and more recent­ly work­ing across a num­ber of prac­tice groups and impress­ing all who work with her. She is very deserv­ing of this promotion.

This is a great sto­ry of invest­ment and suc­cess indi­vid­u­al­ly and for the Firm. It’s an excit­ing time in our con­tin­ued growth jour­ney and these pro­mo­tions will enable us to con­tin­ue to deliv­er unri­valled val­ue for mon­ey and qual­i­ty of ser­vice with our hall­mark of Gen­eros­i­ty of Spir­it and com­mit­ment to liv­ing the Swaab Brand of Ser­vice,” said Mary Digiglio — Man­ag­ing Part­ner Swaab”.
