At McKenna and Associates we understand being active members of the West Australian legal profession involves supporting the legal community in myriad ways.
Part of what makes McKenna and Associates specialists in the legal recruitment sector is recognising that while aligning candidates and clients is important, ensuring ongoing engagement and growth across the profession as a whole, is imperative.
Every year McKenna and Associates support a range of events and initiatives. Our aim is always to encourage strategic networking, and celebrate industry achievements. We believe the West Australian legal profession is strengthened by a sense of connection.
That is why we were happy to sponsor the Law Society of Western Australia End of Year Celebration for 2020. The chance to relax and engage with other legal professionals has many benefits—including a chance to match names with voices and faces!
Sponsoring the Piddington Society Margaret River Conference in 2019 is one example of our ongoing commitment to the state’s legal profession. The Piddington Society, established in 2010, is a sophisticated organisation working to further justice.
McKenna and Associates has a history of supporting increased representation across all levels of the legal sector. We have always been proud supporters of women in law, working hard to offer access to the best possible career opportunities.
In 2018 and 2019 we sponsored the Women Lawyers of Western Australia end of year drinks. We were also bronze sponsors of the WLWA Honours Dinner for the past three years, honouring the achievements of women in law in Western Australia.
Recognising the West Australian legal profession is a constantly evolving field, one way we remain an active and responsible member of the legal community is by investing in the profession’s future.
This involvement is a contributing factor when it comes to our premium recruitment and consultancy services. Comprehensive knowledge of the West Australian legal profession is an invaluable asset, and key to McKenna and Associates exemplary record.
We are annual corporate sponsors (2019, 2020, and 2021) of the Australasian Legal Practice Management Association. The ALPMA educates, promotes and develops legal practice management skills and thought leadership knowledge within the legal industry.
Our wide-ranging sponsorship choices include College of Law Western Australia mental health first aid training, and being silver sponsors of the 2020 RINWA Quiz Night held by the Restructuring and Insolvency Network Western Australia.
Increased diversity across the West Australian legal profession is also a positive change we consistently endorse. In February we’ll be sponsoring the AALWA Luna New Year Banquet, supporting the WA branch of the Asian Australian Lawyers Association.
In 2021 we will continue being proactive when it comes to industry engagement. Our experienced team knows that our longevity and stellar reputation comes from having keen knowledge of, and extensive insight into Western Australia’s legal scene.
Reach out to McKenna and Associates in the coming year, whether as an employer looking for the perfect candidate, or a legal professional hoping to find premium employment. We’re happy to discuss possibilities, strategies, and opportunities.
We wish all our clients a healthy and happy 2021! Here’s to a productive, fulfilling, and successful year for those working in the West Australian legal profession. Know that we are always available to address your professional placement needs
