Insurance trio promoted to special counsel

Insurance trio promoted to special counsel


An Australian law firm has announced it has promoted three of its senior associates to special counsel.

Effective 1 August 2017, Curwoods Lawyers will have three new special counsel.

Vid Dragomirovic, Angela Martignago and Emma Roberts will take to their new roles next month.

Mr Dragomirovic and Ms Martignago are compulsory third-party specialists in Curwoods’ motor vehicle insurance team, while Ms Roberts is a public risk and products liability specialist in the firm’s commercial insurance dispute resolution team.

Commenting on the promotions, Curwoods’ managing partner Scott Kennedy said: “It is with great pleasure that we promote Vid, Angela and Emma to special counsel”.

“All three are high-calibre lawyers who have significantly contributed to the firm over the years. In particular, they have shown a great degree of commitment in strengthening ties with our clients, and have taken an active role in mentoring junior staff members to succeed.

“I congratulate them on their efforts and look forward to seeing them continue to advance in their careers at Curwoods.”

Mr Kennedy also took the time to congratulate senior associate Helen McHugh, who was recently announced as a finalist in the Senior Associate of the Year category at Lawyers Weekly’s Australian Law Awards 2017.

“The energy and enthusiasm Helen brings to not only her legal work, but also to Curwoods corporate and social responsibility initiatives demonstrate her commitment to contributing towards the success of our business,” he said.

“We are proud to see Helen recognised for her achievements.”
