Strong growth prompts Melbourne move to larger premises
Following two years of solid growth, Kennedys in Australia is pleased to announce that we have moved to new premises in Melbourne Central Tower.
Kennedys opened an office in Melbourne in August 2017, having been based in Sydney since 2006. Since then the Melbourne office has tripled in size to more than 30 staff, and enjoyed revenue growth of 35% in the last financial year alone.
Investing in talent
Foundation Melbourne partner, casualty specialist Michael Kavanagh and his team have been joined by a large healthcare team led by partners Cindy Tucker and John Petts, a specialist employment practice led by partner Chris Molnar, and most recently ex Piper Alderman litigation partner Jane Kupsch in a growing commercial practice.
Kennedys’ Australian managing partner Matt Andrews said: “We’ve been candid about our ambitions to grow in Melbourne and we are very pleased with our achievements in the first two years.”
In the last 12 months in particular Kennedys has appointed several senior staff in Melbourne including :
- Special counsels Maya Parbhoo (Healthcare) and Bryan Mueller (Employment)
- Senior associates Jasmine Sandhu (Casualty) and Lucy Reade (Commercial Litigation)
They have since been joined by a number of new associates, and several roles are being recruited in response to client demand.
“The new office reflects our confidence in our underlying business and client relationships,” said Matt Andrews.
‘We thank our clients for their continued support, and reaffirm our commitment to supporting them in these extraordinary times.
“We look forward to welcoming guests to our offices in the not too distant future.”
COVID-19: Kennedys in Australia is open for business. In line with current government directions all staff are working from home.
