Lander and Rogers hires four from rivals

Lander and Rogers hires four from rivals

Law firm Lander & Rogers has announced four new senior appointments, taking from TressCox Lawyers, Wotton + Kearney and others.

Law firm Lander & Rogers has announced four new senior appointments to its Sydney and Melbourne offices from TressCox Lawyers, Wotton + Kearney and others.

The new appointments cross the insurance and litigation practices.

Charles Thornley, formerly of Wotton + Kearney, joins the firm as a partner in its Sydney office.  Thornley has specialised in insurance law for nearly 20 years.  His key areas of practice include construction, property/ISR and professional indemnity.

Thornley said: "Construction projects are becoming increasingly complex and we have seen an associated increase in the past couple of years in property and construction-related litigation.   

Lander & Rogers Insurance Law & Litigation group is well known and well respected both nationally and internationally, and I'm excited by the opportunity to work with Ari Abrahams and the team to continue to grow the property and construction area of Lander & Rogers' insurance practice."

Senior associate, Robert Muir, has joined the firm's Melbourne office. Muir previously acted on behalf of two of Australia's leading private medical defence organisations. He now specialises in matters relating to medical insurance including the defence of litigation against public hospitals and general practitioners 

Stephanie Lecouvey has joined the firm's Melbourne office as a senior associate.  She joined the firm from TressCox Lawyers, and practises in insurance law and litigation with a focus on professional indemnity and general commercial disputes.

Sonia Hay joins the firm's Sydney office as a senior associate. Hay's experience spans across dispute resolution, including informal negotiations, mediation and court litigation. She has advised national insurers, medical defence organisations and private hospitals in relation to claims, including providing technical and strategic advice.  

Co-head of Lander & Rogers' Insurance Law & Litigation group, Lisa Newcombe, said, "Our practice continues to experience strong demand for our services across all areas of the insurance market, and particularly in professional indemnity, medical indemnity, construction and Property/ISR."
