On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by HFW managing partner in Australia Gavin Vallely to discuss the history of the global firm, why it sees opportunities for growth in the Australian market and how the age of COVID-19 has reinforced such thinking, the sectors that will form part of the firm’s growth via its Australian operations, and how much the firm hopes to grow by in the coming two years.

Mr Vallely also talks about the importance of not growing simply for the sake of growth, making strategic acquisitions, his role as Australian managing partner in overseeing such a strategy, the challenges he sees in successfully achieving the firm’s goals, the opportunities to be grasped in order to ensure such success, and why he is motivated to move the firm forward.
