Moray & Agnew Lawyers wraps up 2022 with senior promotions and a new office

Moray & Agnew’s Newcastle office has promoted three lawyers to senior roles in its insurance and commercial disputes teams, effective as of 1 January 2023.

The newest Special Counsel are insurance lawyers Kathryn Burrows and Erin Woodward, and commercial litigation and disputes lawyer, Natalie Oliver.

Moray & Agnew’s Newcastle Managing Partner, Sean O’Sullivan said celebrating the successes of another three of our highly talented lawyers was a fantastic way to end the year.

“We continue to grow in line with client demand, with more than 130 people in our Newcastle office,” Sean said.

“It’s gratifying to promote some of the great talent we have internally and recognise Kathryn, Natalie and Erin for looking after our clients so well.

“Each of them has consistently demonstrated their strong ‘client-first’ ethos coupled with exceptional legal skills, adding to the depth of legal talent in our Newcastle office.”

Kathryn, Natalie, and Erin’s achievements are part of 14 senior promotions across Moray & Agnew’s offices around the country, including two new Partners.

2022 was an exciting year for Moray & Agnew, with the opening of a new office in Cairns to better service clients operating in the North and Far North Queensland.

The firm also relocated their Sydney office to 477 Pitt Street in the Haymarket precinct (slated to become a tech hub) to accommodate new ways of working, using technology and alternative working practices to the advantage of all teams and clients.

Ten new Partners (including Megan Palmer in Newcastle), 11 Special Counsel (including Sarah Hammond, Danielle Sweeney, Helene Tretheway and Joan Williams in Newcastle) and eight Senior Associates (including Madeleine Graham and Isabella Rebellato in Newcastle).

“Our Newcastle office is going from strength to strength and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of that. I’m looking forward to a great year ahead!” Kathryn Burrows, Special Counsel – Insurance Law said.

Kathryn has extensive experience in major and complex compulsory third party (CTP) insurance claims, representing insurers in defending catastrophic claims.

She implements effective strategies for the resolution of matters to ensure favourable outcomes are achieved on behalf of her clients in the Personal Injury Commission, District Courts of NSW, and the Supreme Court of NSW.

“I’m thrilled to continue working with my amazing clients and colleagues, while having the opportunity to contribute to the leadership of our Newcastle office in the role of Special Counsel,” Natalie Oliver, Special Counsel – Commercial Litigation and Disputes said.

Natalie is sought after for her expertise as a commercial litigator.

She focuses on infrastructure disputes, class actions, arbitration and complex litigation, drawing on her years of experience as a litigator on behalf of clients in the construction, infrastructure, and financial services sectors.

“I love being part of the team at Morays. Since joining the firm I’ve experienced real job satisfaction, working with a great bunch of people and for our major clients in interesting and challenging work,” Erin Woodward, Special Counsel – Insurance Law said.

Erin is a skilled lawyer with an outstanding reputation in the Mid North Coast and Hunter region. She has a wealth of experience in personal injury insurance law, having worked exclusively in this field for 20 years.
