Hall & Wilcox boosts Sydney Private Clients practice with two new appointments

Leading independent business law firm Hall & Wilcox has added further depth to its Sydney Private Clients team by appointing two new special counsel, Eileen Meehan and James Whiley.

Eileen Meehan has extensive experience in estate planning, and joins from Bartier Perry, where she was consulting to the private clients team. Eileen was previously a Director in PWC’s private clients team specialising in estate planning.

James Whiley has specialist expertise in estate planning, dispute resolution and succession planning for high net worth clients. He was previously at Bartier Perry where he was responsible for a large portfolio of clients. Prior experience includes a succession and estate planning role at PWC and a senior role at a leading private client team in an international London-based law firm.

Hall & Wilcox partner, Emma Woolley, who heads up the firm’s Private Clients practice, said the new appointees add significant depth and expertise to its national team.

“Eileen and James bring the knowledge, experience and understanding required for the delicate and often complex business of estate planning.

“We are seeing a significant increase in clients looking for specialist help with their personal estate planning and it is great to have James and Eileen in the team to help meet this need. They both each look to understand what clients need, and we are confident their expertise will be highly valued by our clients.”
