Dentons Brisbane Grows Team with Two New Legal Partners
Brisbane, capital of Queensland, is a large city on the Brisbane River. Clustered in its South Bank cultural precinct are the Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, with noted interactive exhibitions.
Dentons continues to build on its Brisbane presence welcoming Craig Chapman and promoting Cara Richardson.
Craig Chapman, formerly Group General Counsel at Bank of Queensland, joins Dentons as a partner in the banking and finance team, and Head of the Brisbane office. Craig has a long and distinguished career with nearly three decades of industry experience.
Craig has been selected by Australasian Lawyer as one of 2020’s leading in-house legal leaders and is also a finalist for Financial Services Lawyer of the Year at the 2020 Corporate Counsel Awards.
Cara Richardson has recently been promoted to partner in Dentons’ real estate group, and has specific experience working with large institutional companies dealing with commercial, industrial and retail leasing, disposal of businesses and land, acquisition of businesses and land and advising on property related matters.
Dentons’ Australia Chair and Australasia Region Chief Executive Officer, Doug Stipanicev, said the addition of Craig, and the promotion of Cara strengthens Dentons’ presence in the Queensland market, and increases the law firms client offering.
Mr Stipanicev also said Dentons’ national presence across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth; and global footprint means that Dentons clients in Australasia will always have a team of experienced legal professionals ready to seamlessly continue to meet their needs.
Dentons is designed to be different. The challenges that our clients are navigating and the opportunities they are advancing are changing at an accelerating pace. We are a law firm that embraces change and can help you grow, protect, operate and finance your organisation.
This is why Dentons is organised to offer more than legal insight; we help you find business solutions, in a seamless fashion, across the globe.
