Squire Patton Boggs is pleased to announce that Susan Goodman has joined its Sydney office as of counsel.
Susan’s extensive experience spans a diverse range of disputes; from advising on issues involving misleading and deceptive conduct and shareholder disputes to misfeasance in public office and defamation. She has advised clients across numerous sectors, including financial services, accounting and audit, media and technology. More recently, Susan has specialised in large, complex commercial litigation and class actions.
“Susan is a great addition to our team,” said partner Amanda Banton, who leads a 17-strong group of lawyers and partners focusing on complex financial litigation, insolvencies and restructuring. “It takes a special skillset to effectively manage large and complex matters that involve extremely technical material, and Susan’s previous experience demonstrates that she is proficient in assessing and advising on the risks associated with litigation, as well as having excellent case management skills.”
The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2018 edition describes Susan as a “next generation” lawyer who is “committed, practical…and totally reliable and capable”. Susan says she is “excited at the opportunity to work with Amanda, who is so highly regarded in her field.” Both The Legal 500 Asia Pacific and Chambers have this year acknowledged Amanda as a “leading lawyer”. Fellow partner Shaan Palmer was also recognised in Asia Pacific Legal 500.
Australian managing partner Campbell Davidson said: “Susan’s appointment is another step towards the firm’s stated objective of strategic growth in areas that align with our clients’ business needs. Susan adds a broad-based disputes capability that sits well alongside our outstanding complex financial instruments and construction disputes expertise.”
