An Australian law firm has bolstered its insurance practice with the appointment of a new special counsel.
Lander & Rogers has welcomed Noa Zur to its Melbourne office, effective immediately. Ms Zur joins the firm from Wotton + Kearney’s public and products liability team.
Ms Zur brings over 10 years’ experience to the firm, practising in workplace and transport accidents, statutory recoveries, and public and products liability claims.
Lander & Rogers co-practice group leader for insurance law and litigation Ari Abrahams described Ms Zur as a significant recruit for the firm.
“Casualty is a core part of a full-coverage insurance team and is a critical part of our offering for clients. Noa’s appointment further bolsters our growing casualty team across Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, which has included recent senior appointments in our Melbourne team – Jacob Luca and Kai-Yan Lam – and the recent promotion of Sybilla Waring-Lambert in Sydney to partner,” he said.
“This brings our national liability team to 23 in size and underpins the firm’s strategy to be the leading all of service insurance team in Australia.”
In addition, Mr Abrahams noted, “We know that our clients want specialist insurance lawyers but they want them from firms that have the capacity to deliver on work volumes and quality.
“We are proud to have a team of some of the most talented and service-focused lawyers in Australia.
“The future of the insurance litigation market is under constant pressure and change, and with Noa’s appointment, we’re really excited about helping our clients nationally to adapt to that change.”
Commenting on her new role, Ms Zur said, “I’m really pleased to be joining the Lander & Rogers team at such an interesting time in the evolution of the Australian liability claims market.
“Landers has an outstanding reputation for providing clients with excellent advice and client service across all lines of business. And they have a culture that is the envy of firms in the Australian market.
“I’m looking forward to working with the national team alongside the leading insurers in our market.”
