We are excited to announce that Anna Peddey has been promoted to Senior Associate. Since joining us in 2018 from Gadens, Anna has slotted in beautifully to the Hive with her practical and client focused approach to delivering legal services to our clients. She is an experienced commercial and regulatory lawyer who specialises in highly regulated sectors including government, health and transport. Her experience includes advising both private and public sector clients on contracts and procurement, commercial transactions, competition and consumer law and privacy issues.

‘One of Anna’s many strengths is her ability to work seamlessly and flexibly with clients to provide them with the assistance they need. This is demonstrated by a number of successful virtual and in-house retainer arrangements that she has undertaken with our clients. She is also a thorough lawyer who has the ability to delve into complex legal issues whilst at the same time finding practical solutions which is something that we really value at Hive’, says Joanna Green, Principal.

In 2019 Anna completed a four month combined in-house and virtual arrangement with a Victorian Government client which was adapting to a restructure. During this innovative arrangement Anna worked closely with the in-house legal team, as well as other business stakeholders, advising on a range of matters including a large scale procurement, BAU procurements, a high volume of funding agreements, interagency agreements and a range of regulatory matters.

‘Working at Hive offers a unique combination of challenging regulatory, commercial and strategic work in a creative and relaxed environment. Flexible working arrangements, fixed fee pricing (with no time recording) and a highly skilled, motivated and collaborative team contribute to a positive workplace. This combination minimizes additional stresses commonly associated with complex legal work, and enables our team to deliver focused, innovative, high quality solutions. I’m grateful to be taking the next step in my career at a firm whose values I share’, says Anna.

Congratulations Anna!
