Hicksons Appoints New Partner

Hicksons has announced the appointment of leading specialist in employment and workplace relations law, Warwick Ryan, who commenced as a partner on 6 September 2017. Primarily based in both Sydney and Newcastle offices, Warwick is a welcome addition to the firm and will be integral in shaping the future of our practice to support our clients' evolving needs.

Warwick joins Hicksons from Swaab Attorneys. With more than 20 years' experience as an employment lawyer, he is well known for his strategic advice to employers, bringing them the best outcomes for their working relationships with staff.

While conflict cannot always be avoided whether in the form of opportunistic claims by current or former employees or where zealous regulators pursue prosecutions against business, Warwick has a track record of ensuring clients are provided with the right guidance to protect their commercial interests and brand.

John Markos, Managing Partner of Hicksons said: "We are delighted Warwick is joining Hicksons. This move is a welcome addition to the firm especially with our focus on integrated solutions that create sustainable value for our clients."

"Hicksons lawyers and business advisors are extensively engaged in developing new ways of working with and delivering services to clients, that includes increasing use of technology and project management tools. We have every confidence that Warwick will be able to join our work in transforming this interaction with clients."
