The announcement showcased Catherine Moore’s appointment as an associate director after spending the last four years as a partner for Moores Legal.
Joining his Moores colleague, Andrew Brooks has also taken up an associate role with the firm.
A finalist in the upcoming 2018 Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards in the category of thought leader, Ms Moore is an accredited specialist in workplace relations.

Mr Brooks comes from an associate position in Moores’ corporate advisory team, where he had specific focus on workplace relations and child safety.
Speaking on their decision to make the move across to the NewLaw firm, Ms Moore said they “are both so incredibly excited to join Demetrio and the Law Squared team.”
“We’ve had a wonderful experience and opportunity at Moores but the decision to join Law Squared was an easy one as Andrew and I had been following the firms meteoric rise to fame since its launch in early 2016,” she noted.
She said the Law Squared team embodies “the true fundamentals of NewLaw practice,” and manages to “create a true alternative to the traditional law firm model in the best interests of clients.”
Focused on outcomes and not budgets, and embracing a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, we cannot wait to work with the Law Squared team and clients,” she continued.
Speaking on the pair’s appointments, Law Squared’s founder and director Demetrio Zema said “Catherine and Andrew are exceptional lawyers with a breadth of knowledge, expertise and credibility.”
“I very much look forward to continuing to grow the firm and its presence with their input and support,” Mr Zema said.
“Attracting such outstanding, leading and talented lawyers reinforces the shift to NewLaw as lawyers seek greater flexibility, balance and workplaces that align with their values.”
