Outgoing CEO of the Queensland Resources Council (QRC), Michael Roche, has been appointed to Australian law firm, McCullough Robertson, in an advisory role. Roche will join McCullough Robertson’s resources group in February 2017.
“McCullough Robertson plays at every level of the resources chain,” said Roche, who will divide his time between the law firm’s Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle offices.
“The team embraces the tough pioneering work of structuring and negotiating projects from the bottom up but it equally comfortable advising government and peak industry bodies to help shape policy and legislation.”
Head of McCullough Robertson’s resource group, Damien Clarke, welcomed Roche to the role, saying the company was looking forward “to tapping into Michael’s expertise to provide enhanced strategic insight and deliver our clients unmatched advice”.
Roche led the QRC for 11 years before announcing his intention to step down earlier this year.
