Commercial law firm, Cowell Clarke has further strengthened its financial services capabilities with two senior appointments within its Sydney and Adelaide offices.

The company said that Hillary Ray would be joining the firm as a partner in its financial services practice group, while Elaine Wilson would be joining as senior associate later this month.

The announcement said Ray brought over 14 years’ experience in financial services regulation having held senior roles in legal, corporate governance and compliance advising for publicly listed and international clients from countries including Singapore, the US and China.

It said Wilson’s career had included senior roles at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and in private practice.

Cowell Clarke’s chairman of partners, Mr Brett Cowell, said the senior appointments were in line with the firm’s growth strategy.

“These key appointments cement Cowell Clarke’s leadership position in financial services on behalf of our national and international clients,” he said. “Hillary and Elaine are highly respected within the financial services industry with outstanding reputations among their clients and peers.”
