Minters Read - Newsletter 3


Welcome to the third edition of Minters Read - our Alumni Newsletter.

Nothing inspires us to succeed or develop more than reading about what others have achieved or experienced - especially when we share something in common. Minters Read is about staying connected - to each other, the firm and all our latest news.

In this edition, we head to the US again and talk to Darren Chait, co-founder of Hugo - a technology company that provides software to improve team collaboration in meetings.

While it's always nice to hear about life after Minters, we also love hearing from people who have decided to return – a trend we're seeing across the firm and one that is a wonderful reflection on MinterEllison and its culture. In this edition, we catch up with return recruits, Virginia Bourke (External Consultant) and Michael Stansby (Clients & Markets Growth Lead, Consulting Solutions).

From a firm perspective, there's a lot happening: we've recently welcomed our new CEO, Annette Kimmitt, who is based in Melbourne; we're Official Lawyers to the Invictus Games Sydney 2018; our FY18 Annual Report has just been released online; and the firm continues to present greater diversity and growth. There is much to be proud of and share with you all.

We want to hear from you! Please get in touch if you have news about yourself, or other MinterEllison alumni, that you would like to share.

Want to keep up to date with upcoming Alumni events and news? Make sure you join the Minters Alumni LinkedIn group so you’re always in the know.

I hope you enjoy our third edition of Minters Read, and encourage you to stay in touch.
