Jennifer joined the firm in September 2006 and has an excellent technical knowledge of the legislative and strategic demands of workplace law, particularly in servicing the tertiary education sector.

Quincy is a commercial lawyer with a particular focus and experience in information technology and intellectual property. He is a registered trade mark attorney and has also been trained on critical aspects of negotiation and mediation at Harvard. Quincy joined Hicksons in 2007 and has over the years been involved in some of the firm's largest and most complex matters. His promotion is a testimony of the continued growth of our Corporate and Commercial team.

In addition to the promotion of 2 new partners, the firm also confirmed the promotion of 1 Senior Associates and 3 Associates:

According to John Markos, 'Hicksons people are the foundation of the firm and a key part of our strategy. We continue investing in growing our new generation of talent to become future leaders who will create sustainable value for our clients, our people and the firm.

Hicksons Lawyers will move into their new Sydney premises in One International Tower Sydney at Barangaroo later this month.
