Legalign Global alliance member, Wotton + Kearney, is opening its eighth office in Australia’s capital city, Canberra in September 2022.
David Kearney, Wotton + Kearney’s Chief Executive Partner, said: “We have been keen to grow our government and insurance practice to support our clients in Canberra for some time but didn’t want to do so without the right team and leader to spearhead our move. With the arrival of Cath Power, arguably one of the most respected insurance lawyers in Australia, and her team who join us from Sparke Helmore, we are confident we have done just that”.
The firm’s move into Canberra is the latest chapter in its strong Australasian growth story. It follows the recent opening of Wotton + Kearney’s Adelaide office and several 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.
Wotton + Kearney now has more than 340 dedicated insurance lawyers, including 62 partners, across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Wellington and Auckland. To meet insurers’ needs, the firm also has an active presence in the London and Singapore markets.
