We are pleased to welcome expert media law duo Justin Quill and John-Paul Cashen who have joined Thomson Geer as Partners in our Melbourne office.  Accompanying Justin and John-Paul is a team of five lawyers and support staff.

In addition to having represented, media personalities Sam Newman, Mike Sheahan and Don Scott on the high profile defamation claim by Nicky Winmar, the team is currently representing more than 30 media outlets and journalists in the high profile George Pell contempt case.

Chief Executive Partner Adrian Tembel said, “We are continually focussed on securing first class talent to complete our transition to major law firm status.”

“Our lawyers are retained more and more to solve some of business and governments’ most challenging problems or to add value to large and complex transactions. The Quill/Cashen team will expose us to important high profile dealings in the Australian media sector”, Mr Tembel continued.
