DW Fox Tucker Lawyers is thrilled to announce the promotion of Jonathan Ikonomopoulos to the position of Director. This promotion is a significant milestone for both our firm and Jonathan as he is the first practitioner to progress through our entire career development program since the firm’s inception in October 2014.­­

Jonathan joined our firm as a law clerk in January 2015, and with the guidance of his mentors, Ben Duggan and John Walsh, and the support of the firm’s leaders, Jonathan actively pursued every opportunity offered through our program to enhance his skills and expertise.

Indeed, his exceptional work recently earned him recognition in the 2024 edition of ‘Best Lawyers of Australia’ for occupational health & safety law.

DW Fox Tucker’s Employment, Workplace Relations & Safety team leader, Ben Duggan, praised Jonathan’s legal expertise, devotion to supporting his clients and loyalty, saying, “over the past decade, Jonathan has offered invaluable support to our clients, and it’s been a pleasure witnessing his growth and evolution into a firm leader.
