Mallesons flies in new London chief

Australia-based Mallesons Stephen Jacques is relocating Sydney-based partner Rowan Russell to head the firm’s London office.

Russell’s appointment as Mallesons’ London senior partner will become effective from the end of this month. His move will also further enhance the firm’s corporate finance and capital markets capability in London.

Commenting on the move Mallesons’ chief executive partner, Robert Milliner, said: “Rowan will provide a robust and complimentary dimension to our London practice, with expertise to accord with the multi-jurisdictional nature of much of our work done out of London.”
