Aussie firm launches private resolution centre
An Australian law firm has rolled out a new centre in response to the evolving nature of handling disputes.
HopgoodGanim Lawyers has unveiled the HG Private Resolution Centre, which is situated in the firm’s Brisbane office.
The new centre offers a dedicated facility for lawyers to manage mediations and dispute resolution matters, and comes in response to heightened client demand.
HG Private Resolution Centre will be headed up by partners Freda Wigan (family and relationship), Geoff Wilson (family and relationship), Alison Ross (family and relationship), Paul Betros (litigation and dispute resolution) and Richard Gardiner (litigation and dispute resolution).
HopgoodGanim managing partner Bruce Humphrys said the establishment of the HG Private Resolution Centre reflects the unique foundations of the firm.
“HopgoodGanim was founded by family lawyer Paul Hopgood and commercial litigator Joe Ganim. Providing successful outcomes in dispute resolution is in our DNA, be they commercial disputes or those involving personal and family matters,” Mr Humphrys said.
“Paul and Joe’s legacy and the contemporary vision from the partners in our family and relationship law team has brought the HG Private Resolution Centre to reality, and we couldn’t be more excited to diversify our offering to our clients and colleagues through the establishment of this premium space.”
Mr Humphrys noted the new centre “significantly enhances the international recognition HopgoodGanim has as a leading family and relationship practice.
“The legal profession and the way we resolve disputes is continually changing and evolving. As a progressive and agile firm, we recognised the shifting landscape and grabbed the opportunity to offer a bespoke resolution space to the market,” Mr Humphrys said.
“HopgoodGanim is delighted to launch the HG Private Resolution Centre, which we believe is the best of its kind in Brisbane.”
