TurksLegal celebrates new appointments

In our December edition of the FSB we announced the welcome return of Sofia Papachristos to TurksLegal as a Partner.

We finally got to celebrate Sofia’s return with clients at our Melbourne appointments function in August. We were also delighted to announce on the night that Troy Williams, a member of our Financial Services Products, Transactions and Regulatory Team in Melbourne had become a Senior Associate. 

Troy was admitted in 2006 and has had extensive experience in private practice and in-house in Australia and overseas in the finance sectors. Immediately before joining TurksLegal in 2017 Troy worked as a legal counsel for the financial services regulator in New Zealand. 

We are also proud to announce that Sydney lawyer, Sophie Campbell and Melbourne lawyer, Caitlin Edwards became Associates in July. 

These individuals have shown enormous talent, not only as legal specialists, but also as ambassadors for our firm.
