Aussie firms announce amalgamation
Two Australian law firms have confirmed they will officially amalgamate, effective 1 July 2019.
Coleman Greig Lawyers and North-Parramatta based Dooley & Associates Solicitors will combine their offering, under which the latter will take on the former’s namesake.
“This is a significant win for clients of Dooley & Associates, who will gain access to the combined wealth of experience and legal expertise of two reputable and award-winning firms,” chief executive Warrick McLean said.
“In turn, Coleman Greig is thrilled to be able to welcome such an experienced and revered team into the fold, boosting our already strong commercial client base.”
The move sees Dooley & Associates’ partners Malcolm Campbell and Luke Mitchell become principal lawyers at the bolstered Coleman Greig. Their new roles will see them take to the firm’s commercial advice team.
On the amalgamation, and his team’s move to join Coleman Greig Lawyers, Mr Campbell said: “Having been a part of Western Sydney’s legal community for close to two decades, and as managing partner of what many would see as a competing local firm, I have long admired Coleman Greig – not only for its steady and ongoing growth as a business, but for its client-centric advocacy”.
“The Dooley & Associates team is incredibly excited to be joining the firm, and we are looking forward to seeing what the future will bring!”
