“Gina and Claire are practitioners of the highest calibre, and the firm is delighted to recognise their achievements,” KHQ Lawyers managing director David Kelly said.
“Impressively, they have, along the way, already gained key external market recognition in well-respected legal directories, and their promotions will elevate both the team and the firm as a whole.”
Director and practice group leader for workplace relations and safety Chris Gianatti added: “What can I say? How cool is it to have such amazing lawyers take the team forward!”
“Congratulations Gina and Claire, you are the ones who make this team what it is in terms of absolutely first-class hard work and style and thanks so much to our amazing client base who give us the opportunity to do such great work every day!”.
Commenting on her new role, Ms Capasso said: “I am grateful for the ongoing support of my clients and colleagues in achieving this career highlight. I am excited to share the next stage of learning to provide solutions to the myriad workplace employment and safety challenges faced by businesses.”
Ms Brown noted: “I’m delighted to become a principal solicitor at a firm I truly believe in”.
“KHQ has fostered an environment of growth and learning for me and has allowed me to form some fantastic relationships with colleagues and clients. I’m both tremendously proud to have reached this milestone with their support and incredibly excited to move to this new chapter in my career,” she concluded.
