Herbert Smith Freehills’ partner Luke Hastings has been appointed Regional Head of Practice for Australia’s disputes team.
Hastings has been appointed for a four year term following the move of former Regional Head of Practice, Geoff McClellan, to the role of Managing Partner, Clients and Sectors.
Fostering a truly global mindset and supporting diversity and inclusion within the disputes team will apparently be Hastings’ key priorities. “One of my key priorities will be to enhance collaboration between the Australian disputes team and Herbert Smith Freehills’ offices around the globe, particularly in the Asia Pacific region.
Global Head of Disputes, Justin D’Agostino, said Luke was an excellent appointment and would bring drive, energy and commitment to the role.“
