New special counsels Divina Moodley and Alice Robinson have both joined the personal injury firm — which has increased the size of its team from 10 to 15 staff in the last six months. 

Polaris Lawyers founder Nick Mann said that the pair would join the leadership group. 

“We’re thrilled to have Alice and Divina join our group and to be able to make an immediate contribution in serving our clients and mentoring our teams. The opportunity for them to help lead Polaris through the next part of our journey as a boutique firm is something that is enormously exciting,” he said. 


“It’s a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our group that we’ve continued to grow and thrive through the worst of the last two years. To be able to attract such highly respected and talented lawyers as Divina and Alice is a testament to the culture that we have, and the vision that our team is working so hard to execute.”

Ms Moodley and Ms Robinson have over 12 years of experience in personal injury and have worked across a number of Australia’s plaintiff law firms.

Ms Moodley said that she joined Polaris because it provided her with an “opportunity to be part of a team that delivered quality legal services in an innovative and accessible way”. 

“Access to justice and making the legal process easier and less daunting for clients are close to my heart. This aligned with Polaris’ vision and mission. Working with a great bunch of people was an added bonus,” she said. 

“There is lots to be excited about. We have many projects in the works that aim to provide greater access to justice for clients and I am looking forward to the rollout of these projects. Our commitment to provide accessible and quality legal services in innovative ways is something I’m very excited about. There is a lot happening in the workers compensation space and I’m thrilled to be able to grow that department.”

Commenting on her new role, Ms Robinson added: “I joined Polaris because the firm’s approach to client care and the firm vision reflects the way I have always wanted to practise law and look after my clients.

“I am excited to be part of a firm which is always looking for ways to improve not only the experience for the client, but to improve the culture and empower its members to be their best. I firmly believe that this is the way to get the best results for the client and to help the team feel part of a really worthy exercise.”
