The Partner of the Year Awards showcases outstanding performance by partners, or partner equivalent, across individual practice areas within the Australian legal profession.
Megan Jongebloed has been at Cowell Clarke for 12 years and is the lead director of our Corporate and Commercial team. She has consistently demonstrated the highest levels of leadership, technical expertise, mentorship and business development skills within the firm.
Megan has previously stated that “As the director responsible for the Corporate and Commercial team, I believe there is nothing more important than setting an example. While this comes through the provision of exceptional legal advice, assistance and representation to our clients, it is also a vital element in the culture and strategy of any team.”
Senior Associate, Katie Pote was full of praise for Megan. “Without a doubt, she is technically excellent and delivers outstanding services to her clients. But it is Megan’s people management skills which really sets her apart as a leader. Her exceptional ability to communicate means that she is able to deliver technical, strategic and commercial advice in easy to understand plain English, and her high-quality service results in repeat work from her clients which consistently keeps both her and her team busy.”
As a compassionate leader, Megan is the perfect fit to be our firm’s Staff Director and she is a true role model for all at our firm. She has been instrumental in building and maintaining the great culture in her team and the firm generally.
Megan would be a worthy winner of the award and everyone at Cowell Clarke wishes her every bit of luck!
