Corporate lawyer Stephen Power has established a new law firm less than three weeks after Sydney-based Middletons moved into Perth by merging with his old firm Salter Power and with Franklyn Legal.

Mr Power has teamed up with former Salter Power senior associate Cathy Donaldson and former LionOre Mining International corporate counsel Mark Rodda to establish Napier Legal.

Mr Power told WA Business News associates were keen to retain the boutique approach, delivering attention to individual clients and quality services, previously offered by Salter Power.

He said since opening on December 1, business had been very good.

"We have a number of corporate clients who followed us across, and business has been brisk," he said.

Mr Power said Napier Legal was well positioned to deliver high end, tailored service to clients.

"We believe a focus on individual clients is a preferred method for the performance and delivery of legal services, which is especially suited to the current changing economic conditions," he said.

The Middletons merger created an office in Perth of eight partners and 30 legal staff that would take the name of Middletons.

The company said it expanded to Perth because of an increase in clients from Western Australia requiring legal services.

Mr Power was a founding partner of Salter Power, with 20 years experience in advising clients in the resources industry and overseas.

Ms Donaldson is a former senior associate at Salter Power, with experience in all aspects of corporate and commercial law and particular expertise in the resources sector.

Mr Rodda has both private practice and in-house legal experience, and was general counsel and corporate secretary to LionOre Mining International before its takeover by Norilsk Nickel.
