The Legal 500 travelled to Sydney to launch the 2022 edition of the GC Powerlist: Australia. Research editor Chris Vlachopoulos and events co-ordinator David Freeman joined the best of Australia’s in-house counsel to honour those lucky enough to count themselves among the 2022 list, one of our most impressive editions yet. The event took place in Sydney’s beautiful Kimpton Margot, where delegates heard inspirational opening speeches from Sharon Cook, Group Executive, Legal and Commercial Services at National Australia Bank, and Carmel Mulhern, Group General Counsel and Group Executive at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, before enjoying a champagne reception and networking with their contemporaries.
A massive thank you to long-term Legal 500 partners McCullough Robertson, Gilbert + Tobin and Johnson Winter & Slattery for helping to make this event possible, and to Sharon Cook and Carmel Mulhern for their speeches at the event. We look forward to next year!
