Thomsons Lawyers announces high level expansion

17 March 2011


Thomsons Lawyers has reinforced its status as one of Australia’s fastest growing law firms, with the announcement it will be further expanding its national presence.

Chief Executive Partner Adrian Tembel has announced Thomsons will be establishing a full service office in Brisbane, in line with the firm’s national growth strategy.

“We focus on a core principle of continuously searching for ways of adding value to our clients,” Mr Tembel said.

“This move will offer broader geographic service coverage and provide access to a deeper pool of talent and intellectual capital”.

The move into Brisbane will also achieve the firm’s goal of reaching $100 million in revenue within its profit margin targets.

“My partners and I signed-off on a 3-year strategic plan late last year. Our expansion into Brisbane will achieve a number of our key financial and geographic objectives”.

The firm has appointed 10 highly credentialed partners to lead its new Brisbane office, offering expertise in the practice areas of banking and finance, construction, corporate, insolvency, intellectual property & information technology, property planning & projects and taxation.

“These appointments offer a tight cultural fit. They are a high calibre group of partners that share our ongoing commitment to providing outstanding technical expertise, exceptional service delivery, and ultimately added value for our clients,” Mr Tembel said.

The appointments will expand the Thomsons partnership to 56 and will lead to a total headcount across its 4 offices of well over 400 partners, lawyers and staff.

Thomsons Lawyer’s Brisbane office is scheduled for official opening later this fiscal year.
