Brisbane, 1 July 2019: Christine Small will be joining Johnson Winter & Slattery’s market leading Dispute Resolution team. Christine joins the firm’s Brisbane office as a lateral hire from Norton Rose Fulbright, effective from today.
Christine is experienced in managing complex and large-scale litigation, arbitrations and professional determinations across a variety of areas, including financial services, resources and infrastructure, property, general contractual and commercial disputes. She also acts in consumer law matters and regulatory investigations.
Managing Partner Peter Slattery said the growth of the firm’s disputes team was a result of increasing regulatory activity and a general uptick in major disputes.
“In addition to the market trends, we are seeing more opportunity for our disputes team as their reputation for success, and cost effectiveness, becomes better known across the various markets in which we operate. Christine is a highly talented litigator and having her on the team will help us meet the growth in demand as well as broaden out our team on the ground in Brisbane.”
Christine joins Johnson Winter & Slattery’s top tier disputes practice, which handles many of the country’s largest and most complex litigation. The firm is unique in the market for combining top-tier capabilities with a service model that promotes the hands-on involvement of its senior lawyers.
Christine said she was looking forward to joining the team. “Johnson Winter & Slattery’s experience in high profile litigation, regulatory investigations and class actions is impressive and I’m excited to have the opportunity to play a part in the firm’s future success.”
