Gilchrist Connell bolsters workplace practice
Gilchrist Connell has strengthened its workplace practice with the recruitment of a new principal.
Mark Curran has been welcomed as the latest principal of the firm, where he will be based in Gilchrist Connell’s Brisbane office.
His new role will see him lead an established team, alongside lawyers Maddison Harrington and Tom O'Donnell.
Mr Curran is described as a “highly experienced and senior employment and safety lawyer” who has vast expertise in advising insurer and employer clients.
Mr Curran’s appointment comes after the firm promoted Sarah Wood to principal, based in its Sydney office, earlier this year. It also appointed senior associate Adriana Reina in Sydney, and associate Matthew McLean in Melbourne.
“It’s exciting to see our national workplace law/EPL practice continue to expand and thrive,” said Joel Zyngier, head of the firm’s national workplace group.
“Mark’s substantial expertise and approach to client service is an excellent fit with the capability and culture of our high performing team.”
Gilchrist Connell managing principal Richard Wood added: “The success of the workplace practice mirrors client-driven growth and dynamism across other areas of the business, which has seen a 30 per cent increase in our headcount since December 2020 – across all ranks and all offices.”
