Hicksons places its future firmly in the hands of the younger generation

Hicksons is delighted to announce the promotion of two lawyers to the partnership from 1 July 2018.

With more of the younger generation joining the partnership it is an exciting time for Hicksons. Hicksons’ partnership has grown quickly through promotions and lateral recruits over the past few years. This year we have appointed new partners in the commercial and workers insurance teams, strengthening these already thriving practice groups.

Commenting on the promotions, Hicksons’ Managing Partner, John Markos, said: “We are very pleased to welcome to the partnership two dedicated and grounded lawyers who have real world experience and deep expertise. In the last few years we have promoted and acquired partners with longstanding experience in Workplace Relations and Construction Advisory practices. I enjoy working with these individuals and observing their personal and professional development as they move Hicksons into the future.” 

These appointments build on the firm’s growth and capability to provide integrated business and legal advisory services that deliver sustainable value for clients.

The new partners are:

Adam Henderson - Commercial

Adam is a specialist in commercial law. His practice covers corporate structuring, share and business acquisitions, capital raising and asset protection measures. He has acted as counsel for NSW Government clients on commercial arrangements relating to procurement and tendering, commercial agreements and contract negotiations including technology and intellectual property. Adam is a Harvard trained negotiator, recognised for his ability to step back and take a considered, holistic approach to achieving long term solutions for his clients.

Adam joined Hicksons in 2009 and has over 12 years’ experience in commercial law. “I am delighted to be invited to join the Partnership at Hicksons. I have had the opportunity to work on exciting corporate transactional matters, and high profile government business. The firm is genuinely focused on partnering with clients and being more than just a supplier of legal services.  It is an exciting time to be made partner as Hicksons enjoys growth in a number of practice areas. What you have here is a team of creative and energised professionals committed to clients, staff and the community.”

Doyle Myles – Workers Insurance

Doyle’s expertise in workers compensation claims includes complex psychiatric claims, lead scheme agent matters, claims for the Workers Compensation Nominal Insurer, Workers Compensation Commission Presidential appeals and various other disputes in the workers compensation jurisdiction. He has had extensive experience dealing with large government agencies, particularly in the police and emergency services sector, advising both the client insurer and employer where resolution of a workers compensation dispute may have significant consequences for the employer in other jurisdictions.

Doyle joined the firm in 2010 and has over 10 years’ experience in workers insurance and common law. “In joining the firm eight years ago, I have observed the commitment to creating value for clients through quality work and commercial solutions. The energy and professionalism of the people here sets the firm apart. There is a real sense of trust and teamwork, and I look forward to continuing that with the invitation to become a partner.”
