Aitken Partners is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Ward as a Principal Lawyer. Sarah is an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Tenancy Law and has been with Aitken Partners since moving to Melbourne 8 years ago.
Her practice includes a mix of property and commercial law together with her specialised work in commercial tenancy law. Sarah’s practice compliments other departments of the firm, including property, commercial, compulsory acquisition, banking and finance and the litigation teams.
“Sarah is an outstanding lawyer with great skills in client management and building relationships. She has always taken an active role mentoring junior lawyers and that leadership is something we are looking for when making these appointments.” Ed Clark, one of the firm’s senior Principal Lawyers said in announcing her promotion.
“What I value at Aitken Partners is that it is genuinely a great place to work,” Sarah said. “After moving from Queensland, my colleagues at Aitken Partners made me feel so welcome that I have made Melbourne my permanent home.
“I enjoy the quality of the work I have been involved in, and the ability to expand my skills and knowledge with further qualifications such as the commercial tenancy specialisation. I have essentially been allowed to build my own niche practice at Aitken Partners within extremely knowledgeable property and commercial teams.”
Sarah’s appointment brings the number of Principal Lawyers at the firm to 12 and Aitken Partners welcomes Sarah to the leadership team.
