Macpherson Kelley today announced that CEO Steve Parker has decided to retire effective November 6. Managing Principal Lawyer Grant Guenther will take over Steve’s role as National Managing Principal Lawyer.

“On behalf of the Board, I’d like to thank Steve for his contribution to Macpherson Kelley and especially his leadership steering the firm through the critical early stages of COVID-19,” Executive Chairman Damien Paul said.

“His steady hand has ensured Macpherson Kelley is in a strong, stable position for the future as we adapt to the new COVID business environment.”

Steve joined Macpherson Kelley in June 2018. He quickly established a strong management team, launched a program to upgrade systems and technology that enabled the firm to smoothly transition to remote and flexible working, and initiated the firm’s well received rebranding.

“Macpherson Kelley is a great firm with great people who are committed to achieving outstanding outcomes for clients,” Steve said.

“It’s been an honour to be part of the firm and work with it, especially through this challenging period. I’m confident the firm’s leadership and future is in good hands.”

Grant Guenther congratulated Steve on his retirement.

“Steve has been a champion for Macpherson Kelley and its people and we all wish him well for the future,” he said.

Grant began his legal career at Macpherson Kelley in 2007 as an Articled Clerk and progressed to become one of the firm’s youngest Principal Lawyers in 2015. He has been Managing Principal Lawyer of the firm’s Dandenong office since 2017.
