Team of 36 defects to new firm

A team of 36 insurance lawyers and support staff have made the switch to a new firm, following the lateral hire of six partners in April.

A team of 35 from Sparke Helmore have confirmed they will join the Hall & Wilcox this month.

The mass move comes shortly after six partners - Grant Galvin, Simon Morgan, Rhett Slocombe, Daniel Stoddart, Nicholas Studdert and Joanna Turnbull - joined Hall & Wilcox from Sparke Helmore in April.

Along with the six new partners, the new Hall & Wilcox insurance team will comprise three special counsel and nine senior associates, eight lawyers and 16 law clerks, paralegals, administrative and support staff.

“We are excited about the new team members joining us,” said Hall & Wilcox managing partner Tony Macvean said.  “The Hall & Wilcox insurance team is now one of the largest in Australia and is positioned to provide a compelling national service offering to a wide range of clients in the insurance sector.”

The new team members will be based in Hall & Wilcox’s Sydney and Newcastle offices and the majority of the team started with the firm this week.
