Tasmanian firm cements mainland offering

Tasmanian firm cements mainland offering

Page Seager has appointed a new partner to its Melbourne office, increasing its presence on the mainland.

Former Allens managing associate Luke Gattuso has joined the Melbourne office in the workplace relations practice.

Partners Rod Gillam and John Honner established the firm’s offices in Melbourne earlier this year.

Meanwhile, the firm is also increasing its headcount in its Hobart office by appointing two new partners.

Jason Dixon (pictured below), who was previously a director at Ash Street, is relocating to Page Seager’s Hobart practice from Sydney. Mr Dixon has also worked as a general counsel of IBM Australia and New Zealand.

David Palser has joined the construction and infrastructure practice in Hobart. He is moving to Hobart from Hong Kong, where he held a senior position with construction company Leighton Asia.

“These appointments are key to the firm’s evolution, as we move from being a dominant local player in Tasmania, to a firm with a national footprint, and capabilities in sectors with strong growth opportunities,” said Gerry Connolly, managing partner of Page Seager.

“In the last few years our growth has been coming from the mainland, so it made sense for us to have a base there."

Mr Connolly added: “We are building a ‘near-shoring’ model, where the strategic location of our office in Melbourne is complemented by back-end support from our lower cost-base in Hobart. This allows Page Seager to maintain its pricing advantage in the national market.

“Additionally, we continue to attract top-tier lawyers from the mainland to work in Tasmania. They are drawn to the opportunity of having a more relaxed lifestyle, while still gaining access to challenging, top-tier legal work.”
