In his role leading DLA’s government litigation group, Abrams acted for numerous Commonwealth agencies and state government departments. He specialises in complex workplace health and safety issues and compliance matters.
Lazarus Dobelsky (pictured right), a special counsel in DLA’s government practice, has also moved across to Moray & Agnew.
Bill Papastergiadis (pictured right with Abrams), Moray & Agnew’s managing partner in Melbourne, commented that attracting lawyers the calibre of Abrams and Dobelsky demonstrates that the firm is a contender among the legal market’ big players.
“We have been steadily gaining on our competition over the last few years in many areas, and it might come as a surprise to some of them that we are now as sizable and successful as we are in insurance and government,” said Papastergiadis.
