Addisons announces Kieren Parker as Managing Partner

Australian law firm Addisons announced today that corporate partner, Kieren Parker is its new Managing Partner.

Kieren joined Addisons in 2011, moving from Senior Associate to Partner in four years, and now Managing Partner. He has been a member of the firm’s Management Committee for the past two years.

David Ferguson, outgoing Managing Partner commented:

“I have worked closely with Kieren on the management committee and I know he understands both the business and culture of Addisons. It has been a privilege to serve as Managing Partner for the last four years and I’m sure Kieren will bring his own brand of energy to the role. I look forward to continuing to work with my clients and to supporting Kieren in his management role”.

Kieren commented:

“David led the firm through an important four year period, overseeing strategic growth to strengthen and extend our practice areas, and a very successful rebrand project. He steered the firm through the uncertainty of COVID-19 with a steady hand, all the while championing Addisons’ culture of excellence and collaboration. The firm is in great shape for the future.

Our focus has been and always will be on delivering high quality work for our clients. Looking ahead, firm-wide this means not only ensuring our people have an efficient platform that supports them in serving clients effectively, but also launching innovative solutions that I think will surprise some people. We will continue to grow in response to client demand, and championing our next generation of partners is a key part of that. Like David I will continue my own practice, and will have the support of a fantastic management team.

I am immensely proud of our people. They are the reason that we have the calibre of clients that we have. We have an outstanding record in retaining and promoting staff. Addisons also has a proud record of inclusiveness going back many years, as demonstrated in our gender diversity with more than half of the firms’ lawyers being female and 33% female partners, as well as my colleague Laura Hartley serving as one of the first female managing partners of a law firm in Australia. Part of my role is to hand over the reins to the next Managing Partner with an even better record.”
