Andrew Clarke, currently the marketing manager at Aitken Partners, had an interesting path to his current destination. He has held several jobs, having paid his way through university as an umpire, his first job being as a sports writer at an Australian Football publication in the 1980s, and then working at various levels in and around sports, including coaching with the Pakistan Shaheens and the Caulfield Bears where he also served as Club President. He also co-authored the autobiography of former professional Australian rules footballer Matthew Lloyd, who played for the Essendon Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
Aitken Partners is a premium level Melbourne-based law firm offering a range of legal services to business, private clients, not-for-profits and the Australian Federal Government and its agencies. “We have lawyers who are accredited specialists in family law, commercial tenancy, workplace relations, commercial litigation, tax law, wills and estates, and property law,” says Clarke.
He adds that the Aitken Partners advantage runs much deeper than merely this level of expertise. “It is about our commitment to providing commerciality in our advice to clients; about genuine partner access but not to the exclusion of other lawyers who may be more appropriate for a given task. Our approach is designed to ensure our clients receive value for money.”
