Meet our new Partners

It is with great pleasure that we introduce our new Partners within our practice.

June 2015 PartnerPromotionsGroup_mono


The professional elevation of Rahul Goyal, Sebastian Hams, Cassandra Mathews and Jarrod Villani to the highest level of our business recognises not only their extraordinary commitment and contributions to the firm but also the ongoing strength of our restructuring practice as we continue to diversify our service offerings and client base.


The impressive group are eager and excited to join the other senior leaders of our firm from July 2015, at which time Cassandra will return from Maternity leave, joining the many women leaders across our professional and practice management areas who are able to successfully balance work and family commitments through our flexible workplace practices. 


Please take a moment to learn more about our newest partners and join us in congratulating them on achieving this significant career milestone.

On what becoming a Partner means to him, Rahul said it is the highest accolade you can get for all of the hard work you put in.
