Mallesons new chief confirmed as HK merger forges ahead

The management change-over at Australian firm Mallesons Stephen Jaques is scheduled for next week (9 August) as the firm’s Hong Kong-based managing partner returns to Sydney to become chief executive partner.

Robert Milliner will succeed Tony D’Aloisio who will leave the firm in October to become chief executive and managing director of the Australian Stock Exchange.

Millner’s appointment arrives on the cusp of Mallesons’ merger with Hong Kong firm Kwok & Yih following over a year and a half of negotiations.
