Hall & Wilcox expands national insurance and litigation capabilities

Hall & Wilcox has welcomed special counsel Vicky Kossaris, who has been tasked to lead the firm’s Northern Territory insurance and litigation practice.

The senior lawyer commenced with the independent firm on 3 December in Darwin, making the move from Squire Patton Boggs, where she of counsel for the last four years. She previously served as special counsel at MinterEllison.

The appointment expands the firm’s national insurance and litigation capabilities, adding a lawyer with almost two decades of experience working with commercial, insurance, and government clients.

Kossaris will also provide on-the-ground services in Darwin to the firm’s national clients, Hall & Wilcox said. She has extensive experience in a wide range of insurance, commercial, and civil litigation, as well as policy and regulatory matters.

She was most recently contracted as a team leader of the Department of the Attorney-General and Justice, leading the agency’s unit that was providing the Department of Health with legal advice.

“Vicky’s appointment means we will be able to provide broader geographic coverage to our insurance clients, particularly those we are already servicing nationally and further expand on the firm’s litigation and government national footprint,” said Anton Vucak, Hall & Wilcox partner.
