The Hon Bob Hawke AC was a client of Holding Redlich since the 1970’s.
Our founder, Peter Redlich, was Bob’s lawyer for a long period. When Bob retired from Parliament in 1991 our now National Managing Partner, Ian Robertson AO, took on the role of Bob’s lawyer, a role he was honoured to perform for the past 28 years.
Bob’s achievements are extraordinary, including the transformation of Australia into a modern, globally-competitive economy with a social conscience. History will treat him very well.
Australia has lost one of its greatest leaders and our firm has lost one of our most valued clients.
This is a very sad time but also an opportunity to celebrate a wonderful life of achievement.
