The recent trend in Australia has been to merge with international firms to combat the challenges of a dramatically changing local legal landscape. Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers have bucked the trend and maintained their independence by securing membership to the exclusive Primerus network of independent, boutique law firms.
Carroll & O’Dea believe they have achieved the best of both worlds. The Primerus relationship means that Carroll & O’Dea can now access 3,000 lawyers from 200 firms in more than 40 countries, while retaining their strong, independent identity established more than 115 years ago. The firm has built their reputation as a well respected mid-tier practice in the areas of litigation and dispute resolution, insurance, employment, industrial relations, property, not-for-profit and business law.
Howard Harrison, Managing Partner from Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers said:
“Primerus is widely recognised as a leader in providing high quality legal services at reasonable prices. Their people are considerate, trustworthy and interested in others. Membership to Primerus is not automatically awarded. Our firm was evaluated on several key performance indicators including realtionships and professional dealings with the courts, judges, opposition lawyers, the bar association and most importantly – clients.
Only firms that successfully pass a stringent assessment criteria are accepted as Primerus members, recognising their integrity and a commitment to excellence in service to their clients.”
The Primerus agreement follows the recent appointment of 3 dispute resolution partners and a team of lawyers, underpinning Carroll & O’Dea’s growth, demonstrating their investment in the future and significantly increasing their capabilities and expertise.
