SYDNEY-BASED FIRM Keddies is set to open its fifth NSW office in Wollongong.

According to Keddies partner and founder Russell Keddie, the firm, which specialises in compensation matters, is moving into regional NSW in response to the growing demand for its services outside of Sydney. “While we are based in Sydney we are getting work from regional NSW. In the long run, it makes more sense for us to go to our clients rather than having our clients — many of whom have been through trauma — travel up to Sydney to see us,” he said.

Melinda Griffith, who will head up the firm’s new office, agrees. “[As] with most specialist law firms located in Sydney it’s a long way for people to travel just see their lawyers,” she said.

The Wollongong local, who has worked with the firm for the last 13 years, has been busy building up the firm’s client base in the Illawarra region for some time. Among other things, Griffith is a keen sportswoman who holds a masters degree in international sports law from Cambridge University and was part of the pro bono committee for the Sydney Olympic Games.
