The personal injury firm — which has nine offices across Victoria, including in Melbourne central business district, Craigieburn, Dandenong, Richmond, Ringwood, Werribee, Geelong, Warrnambool and Ballarat, as well as presences in Sydney and Tasmania by appointment — had swelled its number of principals to 12, having elevated seven professionals.

The newest principals at Arnold Thomas & Becker are Joshua Bond, Travis Fewster, Matthew Fitzgerald, Jodie Harris, Don Maffia, Kelly Schober and Tony Siskovski.

The firm’s managing director Lee Flanagan said he was “thrilled” to promote the professionals.


“The expansion of our leadership team comes at a time where we have also seen positive growth across the firm in terms of revenue, staff numbers and new clients. These are outstanding results, particularly given the ongoing disruptions caused by the COVID pandemic, and are a reflection of the hard work, expertise and dedication of all of our people. The results we’ve achieved in recent years demonstrate the very strong momentum we have at Arnold Thomas & Becker.

“We are extremely proud of this result and grateful to everyone at Arnold Thomas & Becker for the role they have played in achieving it,” he added.

Together with the announcement of its newest principals, Arnold Thomas & Becker also noted that it had experienced a “record” increase in revenue in the past financial year, up 27 per cent from FY21.

Moreover, the firm’s personal injury practice achieved 58 per cent growth, year on year, in the number of files it manages.

The firm’s focus on its people, Mr Flanagan posited, has been a “major factor” in its success in FY22.

“Our strong results have enabled us to continue to invest in our people, and to provide them with record bonuses, promotions and salary increases. We have also extended our flexible working policy, introduced new learning and development initiatives and we continue to offer our staff three ‘Wellness Days’, which give our people more time to focus on their wellbeing,” he outlined.

“Over the past two years, we have also increased our staff by more than 35 per cent and created new roles across the organisation.

“We predicted strong double-digit growth for this year, and have more than achieved that.

“By continuing our strong focus on investing in our people and in future growth, I have every confidence these outstanding performance results will continue.”
