MinterEllison Consulting has promoted Melbourne-based company member Usman Khan to partner.

Making the step up from executive director, Usman Khan brings over 23+ years of technology consulting experience to the partnership of MinterEllison Consulting – the consulting arm of leading law firm MinterEllison.

The leader of MinterEllison Consulting’s technology portfolio across Victoria, Khan oversees the firm’s technology offerings spanning capabilities from different disciplines, including digital advisory, finance, risk, procurement and project management – backed by the legal expertise from MinterEllison’s powerhouse law practice.

“In my role, I am focused on developing a high performing team of consultants delivering specialised and integrated advisory services that incorporate our client's unique organisational context, industry leading insights and thought leadership.”

Meanwhile, Khan is passionate about mentoring young talent and influencing workplace diversity and inclusion.

Virginia Briggs, CEO and Managing Partner of MinterEllison, said that Khan’s promotion reflects increasing client demand for the firm’s consulting services in areas such as digital transformation, cyber security and governance advice, and the use and impact of emerging technologies such as ChatGPT.

“Congratulations to Usman. He is making an outstanding contribution to our firm and is creating value for our clients, our people and our communities. We congratulate him on his accomplishments and look forward to his continued leadership.”

Throughout in his career, Khan has worked on multi-billion dollar programs of national significance both in Australia and globally for defence, state and federal agencies and public health-care institutions. Additionally, he has been involved in supporting multiple M&A programs.

Although he operates largely industry agnostic, Khan has gained particular experience in the government, healthcare, telecommunications, education, and financial services sectors.

Alongside Khan, 9 other partners were appointed in MinterEllison’s mid-year partner intake. Company-wide 91 senior appointments were made (from partner to senior manager level), with women notably representing the majority of promotions.
