National law firm Holding Redlich is pleased to announce the appointment of Eleanor Scott as a Partner in the firm’s Queensland practice.
Ms Scott’s areas of practice include local government advisory, property law, commercial law, energy and resources advisory, native title, cultural heritage and land tenure.
Holding Redlich Queensland Managing Partner, Paul Venus, said Ms Scott’s appointment comes at a time of significant growth for the firm.
“We are growing strongly in Queensland and are one of the few national law firms to have a presence in Far North Queensland. This allows us to provide exceptional service and value for money for city-based and regional councils and clients alike,” Mr Venus said.
“We’re delighted to have attracted someone of Eleanor’s extensive experience and capability. Eleanor is well-known for providing high-level legal advice to all levels of government and government agencies, and she will add further value to our government clients.
“By achieving great results for our clients, we continue to attract high calibre people, like Eleanor, to our partnership. Her appointment builds on our well-established reputation for delivering excellent results for local and regional governments across Queensland, News South Wales and Victoria,” Mr Venus said.
Ms Scott said Holding Redlich’s approach to building long-lasting relationships with government attracted her to the firm.
“Relationships matter. Whether it’s in government or the private sector – it’s clear to me that building and maintaining relationships based on delivering results are at the core of Holding Redlich’s rapid expansion here in Queensland,” she said.
“It’s the same approach I have always taken to my work with government agencies from indigenous communities to rural and remote regions, and larger cities.”
Ms Scott said she believed Holding Redlich was also well-placed to capitalise on the growth opportunity ahead for Queensland.
“We know infrastructure investment and delivering the right services are crucial to ensuring our economy remains strong, and our regional communities grow sustainably. Holding Redlich has a strong record delivering in these sectors, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this rapidly growing team,” she said.
Ms Scott is a member of the Queensland Law Society, Far North Queensland Law Association, Australian Lawyers for Human Rights and Australian Institute of Company Directors. She is also Chair of the Finance, Audit, Risk and Governance Committee of Community Enterprise Queensland.
