The firm has appointed Julie McStay and Madeline Walsh to the partnership, effective 7 May. Ms McStay and Ms Walsh bring with them a team of six additional aged care and retirement living specialists consisting of four lawyers and two clinical consultants: Stephanie Francis – Senior Associate, Matthew McMahon – Associate, Lauren Babare – Associate, Kate Humzy – Lawyer, Anna Marie Cassaniti – Clinical Consultant and Pam Bridges – Clinical Consultant.
“We made a targeted move in to the health care space some years ago which has progressed very well organically for several years,” chief executive partner Adrian Tembel said.
“In April 2018, we bolstered our aged care and retirement expertise with Arthur Koumoukelis and Amber Crosthwaite joining our Sydney and Perth teams respectively. Now we welcome Julie, Madeline and their team to Thomson Geer Brisbane.
“Their skills and experience complement our existing strengths in this area, and their appointment further develops the depth and diversity of our Brisbane office.
“Our continued expansion in this growth sector has largely been driven by client demand and we have truly national coverage.”
