Legalign Global alliance member, Wotton + Kearney, has opened a new office in Adelaide, Australia. This move continues the firm’s growth trajectory and expanding its footprint into seven cities across Australia and New Zealand – and further expands our global coverage.

David Kearney, Wotton + Kearney’s Chief Executive Partner, said: “Our expansion into Adelaide will meet our increasing local client demand. It’s also a great example of our People First strategy in practice. Throughout the pandemic, we had lawyers who understandably wanted to work from home in their home town. That worked so well that we have now opened an office for the team.”

The firm’s move into Adelaide is the latest chapter in its growth story. It follows recent senior appointments across its Property, Energy & Construction, Financial Lines and General Liability practices and in the specialty lines of Cyber, Marine & Transport and Health, as well as the arrival of the former DLA insurance team in New Zealand.

Wotton + Kearney now has more than 330 dedicated insurance lawyers, including 58 partners, across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Wellington and Auckland. To meet insurer’s needs, the firm also has an active presence in the London and Singapore markets and continues to actively recruit.
