Lawyer Hugo White has a dedicated staff which is evidenced by the number of years they clock up working for him.
Last week the team at White Sautelle Lawyers were celebrating some big numbers and new faces at a lunch at the Merimbula RSL Club.
Jane McGuire has worked for Mr White for 19 years, while Felicity Overend returned to work for him 15 years ago; she first started with the firm over 30 years ago. The firm recently farewelled Alison Mudie, who had been at the Merimbula office for 19 years.
Asked about his ability to keep staff, Mr White said: “It’s a two-way street. You look after them and they look after you.”
More recently though, Heather Ivezic is a newcomer to the office and in a new move for the law firm, Mr White has brought in equity partner, Carmen Thomson who returns to the area after about eight years in Sydney with Legal Aid.
