Sydney, (24 August 2012) – TressCox Lawyers, one of Australia’s leading law firms, has announced they will be merging with Brisbane-based Macrossans Lawyers, effective 1 October 2012.
The merger will result in a fully financially integrated partnership between the two firms. Five Macrossans partners, including current Chairman of Partners Bill Hickey, will join TressCox’s existing three partners based in Brisbane. The full integration of both firms will result in a total partnership of eight in Brisbane and an overall team of approximately 50.
The merger will enable both firms to extend their footprint, not only in the Queensland market, but to existing and potential clients looking for national support. The combined practice areas present a compelling offer in corporate and commercial services; financial services; commercial litigation; immigration; insurance; health; workplace relations and employment law.
Peter Smith, Managing Partner of TressCox, said: “This significant investment in Brisbane reflects our commitment to the market. Macrossans is a highly reputable and respected firm and we see a number of synergies not only in our cultures, but in our approach to growth, our strategic intent and the extension of services we’re able to offer our clients.”
“From the perspective of both firms, this merger will create critical mass in the Brisbane market, giving clients access to a broad range of complementary service lines,” commented Peter Smith.
TressCox Lawyers Brisbane office will be led by Bill Hickey, currently the Chairman and Managing Partner of Macrossans Lawyers. Bill says: “we have had a number of approaches from firms over the years but we were really keen to get the right fit for our clients and our team members”.
