Gadens opens new offices in Sydney

Top 10, independent law firm Gadens has opened new offices in Sydney located at Gateway, 1 Macquarie Place – an iconic address in Circular Quay. Gadens will occupy premium office space on Level 40.

Grant Scott-Hayward, Gadens Chief Executive Officer said:
"This is a very exciting and significant development for our firm and its future.
We will be welcoming a number of new people to Gadens in Sydney, which is very exciting! At least seven new partners are joining in Sydney in the next month or so, and joining with them will be a number of team members. The people joining us are top quality and will notably enhance our brand and market position in Sydney."

These appointments are in the areas of corporate advisory; property; banking, insolvency and restructuring; employment advisory; and commercial litigation and disputes.

With the Australian legal market characterised by client sophistication, Gadens is focused on what clients need and providing them with top service and an outstanding experience. Directly aligned with this is the goal of having a strong, enhanced Gadens profile in Sydney. The firm is proactively working to grow well beyond these initial appointments.

"Our aim is to bring to the Sydney market the high quality Gadens brand and profile that we have built in all our other markets. Gadens has significant strength and prominence, as a top, independent firm in Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. Our strength in these markets has been built over many years of delivering outstanding outcomes for our clients – across every Gadens office. This focus on our clients will continue to underpin our hard work to enhance our Gadens brand in the Sydney market through doing the same for our clients there. We are extremely excited about the future, and the opportunities that expanding in Sydney will bring for our clients, our people and our firm", concludes Mr. Scott-Hayward.
