Norton Rose Fulbright managing partner in Australia Wayne Spanner commented:
“Our business is at an exciting phase in its growth and development in Australia, following our recent announcement of our intention to combine with leading Australian law firm Henry Davis York. This new group of senior lawyers will play an instrumental role in the success of a larger, stronger and more modern law firm.
