Australia: New Managing Partner Plots Growth Trajectory
Last Updated: 26 July 2002

Sydney - Peter Calov has been appointed managing partner of the Sydney office of international law firm Coudert Brothers

Calov, who has extensive experience in commercial and property law, believes that after a period of international consolidation during which Coudert Brothers successfully meshed with other law firms around the world, the firm is now well positioned for future growth, particularly in Australia and within the region. "While the share markets may be wobbly, the foundations of the Australian economy are firm. At the same time the opportunities in the region, and particularly in China where we have a strong and growing operation, are enticing - all of which points to the potential for growth for both our clients and our firm.

"While Coudert Brothers does not equate scale with success, the firm will continue to expand within Australia and around the world where such an expansion will benefit clients," said Calov.

He added: "It is our intent to be seen by corporations as the most obvious choice of legal partner both in their domestic and global operations."

Replacing Peter Noble, who has left Coudert Brothers to take up the position of general counsel to AMP Ltd, Calov said "Peter has helped consolidate the Australian operations of Coudert Brothers, and has worked to develop a strategic plan for the business which we will continue to follow."

Coudert Brothers in an international law firm specialising in corporate and commercial law. Operating as a global unified partnership the firm comprises 700 lawyers based in 31 offices in 18 countries around the world.
