Piper Alderman appoints new commercial law partner

Piper Alderman has announced the appointment of Sarah Johnson as a partner in its Commercial Law team based in Sydney.

Sarah is a highly experienced lawyer with particular expertise in general commercial law, technology, intellectual property and not for profit law.  She has advised financial institutions, multi-national corporations, listed public companies, private companies, peak group organisations and not for profit companies in relation to all aspects of corporate and commercial law.

Sarah has practised for over 18 years, initially in New Zealand, and for the last 13 years, in Australia.

Commenting on her decision to join Piper Alderman, Sarah said:

“The move to Piper Alderman represents a great opportunity to join a national firm with a strong reputation in the Sydney market and Australia-wide. I’m excited to be a part of the growth of its commercial law team. I know my existing clients will benefit from the breadth and depth of expertise and the resources Piper Alderman provides”.

Head of the Sydney Office, Simon Morris commented on Sarah’s appointment:

“As we celebrate our 20th anniversary in Sydney this year, the firm is in a rare place of being one of the fastest growing firms in the country while at the same time being incredibly stable. Sarah’s appointment is another great win for the Sydney office as we can already see great synergies with her contacts and the Sydney partners are looking forward to welcoming a new face to the table.”

Sarah’s appointment follows recent partner appointments including Martin Lovell in the banking & financial services team in Adelaide and Joanne Hardwick in the insolvency and reconstruction team in Melbourne.

Managing Partner, Tony Britten-Jones, said he was delighted to welcome a practitioner of Sarah’s calibre to the team.

“The number of senior appointments we have made recently reflects the areas where we believe real opportunities lie. These opportunities are driving our growth and development. We are delighted to be enhancing our next generation of leading lawyers by making these lateral and internal appointments”.
