Gilchrist Connell promotes four
Specialist insurance firm Gilchrist Connell has announced four senior promotions in its Sydney and Perth offices.
Alex Haslam and Gavin Beardsell, both formerly special counsel in the firm’s Sydney office, have each been appointed as principal, taking Gilchrist Connell’s senior leadership team to nine across its three offices.
Justine Siavelis (pictured), who began as senior associate in the recently launched Gilchrist Connell Perth office, is moving into the position of special counsel, and Verginia Serdev, also in Perth, has been appointed senior associate.
“These senior appointments are another step in the firm’s ongoing evolution since opening in July 2008 … These appointments are in response to our clients’ demand for our services in those markets,” said managing principal Richard Wood.
