Maddocks continues to boost its talent base with the appointment of Lucille Scomazzon, Partner and Angela Wood, Senior Associate to the commercial practice in Sydney. Lucille and Angela have joined the firm from Ashurst.
Lucille has broad corporate and commercial law experience with a particular focus on the aged care, health and life sciences, retirement living, disability services and education sectors. Her knowledge and expertise within these sectors has been acknowledged in Best Lawyers International, where she has been listed as a leading Australian lawyer in health and aged care from 2008 to 2012.
Angela has been working with Lucille for over 7 years and has acted on a number of negotiated mergers and acquisitions, as well as advising on corporate governance, regulatory issues, contracting and outsourcing services, policy review and development, and risk management.
David Rennick, Maddocks’ CEO said: “We are delighted to welcome Lucille and Angela to the firm. They bring a wealth of experience in the health and aged care sectors. Over the years, Lucille and Angela have acted for a range of industry participants, including institutional investors, government and regulatory bodies, financiers, developers, operators, receivers, acquirers and sellers. This hands-on industry knowledge means that Maddocks is now able to deepen our service offering to clients operating in, or with assets in these sectors. Our expanded expertise will benefit our clients across all of our sectors of government, infrastructure and services.”
According to Lucille: “Maddocks offers the flexibility to further grow a practice that is not solely transaction-based, but also a practice that is built on solid client relationships and trust. Maddocks has a strong focus on personal service, partner accessibility, quality and professionalism. Angela and I look forward to continuing to work closely with our clients and helping them achieve their business objectives.”
