Australia: Two young lawyers promoted to the Kott Gunning team
Last Updated: 7 July 2015

Kott Gunning is delighted to announce two promotions effective from 1 July 2015, representing the next generation of leadership and capability at the firm.

Katrina Welch has been made a Senior Associate in Commercial Dispute Resolution, Regulation and Compliance, and Claire Hawke-Gundill has been made an Associate in Property, Estate and Trust Services.

Katrina Welch joined Kott Gunning as a law clerk in February 2007. During her studies, she was a winner of the Law Society of Western Australia's Plain English Drafting Competition and the inaugural Red Cross (WA) Intervarsity International Humanitarian Law Moot.

Katrina has extensive experience in providing advice and representation to statutory corporations. She is also experienced in the conduct and resolution of civil proceedings across a range of industries and jurisdictional forums, with a focus on building and contractual disputes.

Claire Hawke-Gundill joined the firm as a graduate in March 2011 and has since established herself as an integral part of the firm's growing Wills, Estates and Trusts service. Clients have come to rely on Claire for plain English drafting and advice when it comes to succession planning, trusts, wills and estate support services. She also advises on property and commercial related matters.

Kott Gunning's managing partner, Tom Darbyshire, said "we are very proud to have Katrina and Claire at Kott Gunning. They are talented, hardworking and loyal, and their promotions are a significant boost to the Kott Gunning team".
