The opening is not just about national growth, the practice group leader said
Lander & Rogers launched a family and relationship law practice in Brisbane this week.
Mark Parker, partner and national head of the practice group, said that the family and relationship law practice of the national firm is well established, with a history of more than 30 years in Melbourne. The firm launched the practice in Sydney in 2016.
“This expansion to Brisbane will strengthen our ability to service our clients across the eastern seaboard,” Parker said. "It's not just about national growth, though. As the world has become smaller, the movement in cross-border jurisdictions has increased. In recent years, we have seen growth in work which has involved Australian family law and its intersection with the family law jurisdictions in the Asian market, in particular Singapore and Hong Kong.”
Lander & Rogers has appointed Genevieve Dee as partner and tasked her to lead the Brisbane team. A well-respected lawyer in the Queensland legal community, Dee specialises in all aspects of family law, including financial agreements, parenting and property matters, surrogacy, spousal maintenance and child support issue, the firm said.
Dee will be working closely with special counsel Anna Domalewski, an experienced litigator who has worked on complex parenting and property matters. She is also a specialist in spousal maintenance matters and child support issues.
Both Dee and Domalewski are accredited family law specialists. Lander & Rogers said that it has more accredited family law specialists than any other firm in Australia.
“Genevieve and Anna's expertise will broaden the specialist offering that we can provide to not only our national clients, but also international and expat Australians,” Parker said.
