Nexus recruit joined to 'practise law in the way I want to practise'

Nexus recruit joined to 'practise law in the way I want to practise'

Justin Sprogis

A new consulting principal at Nexus Law Group has said the dispersed law model gives lawyers flexibility and control over their practice.

Former Gadens senior associate Justin Sprogis (pictured) recently joined Nexus, bringing with him experience in the banking and finance sectors.

He previously worked as a senior associate at Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills) and Clayton Utz, and as an analyst at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

“It was once the case that the very best lawyers worked for the very biggest law firms; that is no longer the case, nor should it be. Clients want, and should expect, the very best level of legal services from their lawyers, regardless of what firm they work for,” said Mr Sprogis.

He believes Nexus gives lawyers the support and flexibility they need to work while offering clients a completely re-engineered law firm that delivers legal advice in a cost-effective way.

“[Nexus] is a truly positive development in the legal industry and an attractive model for clients,” he said.

“[It] was the only firm that provided me with the opportunity to work side-by-side with clients ... and to practise law in the way I want to practise,” he added.

Mr Sprogis' appointment follows a number of hires by Nexus last year, including former member of the NSW parliament John Turner; former McCullough Robertson partner Brendan Tobin; and former Clayton Utz senior associate Allison Anthony.

Nexus’ founder and principal, Marcus McCarthy, said, “We are very proud to welcome Justin to our team. He is an excellent lawyer and brings a core specialty to the practice.”
