Gilchrist Connell in Harmonie across the globe

Specialist national insurance law firm Gilchrist Connell is the first Australian law firm to join forces with exclusive international law firm network The Harmonie Group. Membership is by invitation only and connects high performing firms across the Americas, the UK, Europe and Asia.

The partnership, which brings together firms with the proven ability to serve the special needs of the risk industry, will further drive the firm’s global reach and capability to service clients in international markets.

“We were delighted to accept Harmonie’s invitation to join forces with over 100 likeminded firms in more than 30 countries. As the only Australian firm in this Group, we are in a unique position to offer our clients a greatly expanded information and ideas network, and the resources available from access to thousands of lawyers from highly qualified firms around the world,” said Managing Principal Richard Wood.

“We, in turn, are looking forward to helping open doors in Australia and expanding the knowledge and understanding of our local market via our five capital city offices around the country,” said Richard.

The Harmonie Group network provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and promotes a better understanding of the unique circumstances and concerns facing clients and firms in the risk industry.

The announcement of this alliance is an exciting development in an already eventful year with the recognition of senior lawyers in every office in the current edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia, the firm’s shortlisting in the Australasian Law Awards and a number of new hires across all offices.
