The partners - David Lee, Lucinda Lyons, David Amentas, Michelle Dunne and Christopher Smith - will join the firm in February 2016. According to a Clyde announcement, they 'will be supported by more than 25 lawyers and work closely with a number of Clyde & Co's existing lawyers'. 

General liability work 

John Edmond, Clyde's managing partner in Australia, said: 'These appointments will allow us to increase significantly our capability in general liability and further expand our professional liability claims work. Our clients have made it clear that this is what they want from us to serve their needs better and we are responding. We will also add to our existing well regarded financial lines and D&O practice.' 

Fast growth in Australia

Clyde has rapidly expanded in Australia since it opened there in 2012. It will have 19 partners and approximately 100 legal staff by March. The Lee & Lyons practice is ceasing to trade from February. Source: Clyde
