New year, four new team members

HopgoodGanim Lawyers is launching into the New Year by welcoming four new team members to its Brisbane office.

Alana Paterson joins the firm as a special counsel in the Employment Law team.

During her 13 year career Alana has advised clients on a wide-range of employment law issues including representing employers in employment and industrial disputes such as unfair dismissal, recovery of wages, discrimination and breach of contract claims.

Alana was drawn to working at HopgoodGanim due to its reputation for an excellent working culture and a team of highly skilled lawyers.

“HG has always had an excellent reputation for delivering superior client service” explains Alana.

“It also goes without saying that the reputation of HG for having the best culture was also very appealing.”

Employment Law Partner Andrew Tobin is looking forward to the New Year and excited to have Alana on-board.

“Alana’s extensive experience is a very welcome addition to the team” said Andrew.

Also joining the firm as an associate is Andrew Smith.

Andrew is a skilled commercial lawyer and will be working in HopgoodGanim’s Private Enterprise team.

Andrew has acted for private companies, emerging businesses, start-ups and high wealth individuals through a variety of corporate and commercial matters including private mergers and acquisitions, dissolution and restructures of companies, trusts and other entities. 

Jodie Cunningham and Caitlin Kelly have joined the firm as solicitors in our large Commercial Property team.

Jodie has experience in commercial and residential conveyancing, large scale sub-development work, commercial and residential lot reconfiguration, retail and commercial leasing for both landlords and tenants and many other unique property dealings.

Caitlin joins HopgoodGanim having worked previously at a multinational law firm. She has experience acting for some of Australia’s largest institutional clients on a wide-range of property matters including acquisitions and disposals and retail and commercial leasing.
