Tanner De Witt promotes Adrian Au to Partner
Tanner De Witt is delighted to announce the promotion of Adrian Au to the position of Partner with the firm, with effect from Thursday, 1 June 2023. The promotion recognises Adrian’s significant contribution to the firm and reflects the firm’s continued investment in the Family Practice. His promotion brings the firm’s number of partners to 16.
Adrian joined the firm in 2017, as an associate in the Family Practice. Adrian advises clients on all areas of family and matrimonial law, including pre / post-nuptial agreements, matrimonial breakdown, separation and divorce, financial applications and arrangements for children. He regularly advises a diverse range of clients, ranging from chairmen of listed companies, second-generation owners of family businesses and SME entrepreneurs with international backgrounds, to high net-worth individuals in the PRC. Furthermore, Adrian also advises on all aspects of contentious probate, and matters involving administration of the estate.
Adrian remarks: “Throughout my tenure in the family practice, I have witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of high conflict divorce litigation on parties and their children. Since joining Tanner De Witt seven years ago, my mentors Joanne Brown and Mark Side have shown me that it is possible for families to conclude their relationships in a peaceful, respectful, and dignified manner.
I am humbled by the unwavering confidence that the partners at TDW have placed in me. I am immensely thankful for the support I have received from the Tanner De Witt family. Without their invaluable guidance and encouragement, I would not have been able to reach this significant milestone of partnership.”
Joanne Brown, Head of Family said: “We’re so pleased to recognise this professional achievement. Adrian is a respected and valued member of our Family Practice team, and we have no doubt he will continue to provide excellent client services with his well-recognised skill and enthusiasm.”
