Gilchrist Connell Triples in Ten – Celebrating Ten Spectacular Years

This month, national specialist insurance law firm Gilchrist Connell celebrates ten years of spectacular growth and expansion.  The founding team pioneered a highly tuned, customised business model, building the firm from the ground up to deliver better insurance law.  This vision paid off and the firm has tripled in size since opening its doors in 2008, making it the first and only solely insurance law firm with offices in every mainland state.

Reflecting on the firm’s success, managing principal Richard Wood said, “It’s been an incredible journey, and exceeded our wildest expectations.  We’ve relished all the excitement and challenges that go with accelerated and exceptional growth in a fiercely competitive market.”

“Client demand has been our sole driver of growth, we’ve only ever added to our ranks to provide a service where our clients need it or when we’re bursting at the seams,” said Richard.

The firm advises hundreds of clients, including several of the world’s largest insurers and some of Australia’s biggest companies.   Continuing its expansion strategically with fast-growing new practice areas and building its presence in international markets, GC enjoys a positive culture and one of the most flexible legal workplaces in the country.

Gilchrist Connell is internationally networked with The Harmonie Group, widely recognised in national law awards programs, and prominently listed in Best Lawyers, Doyle’s and Chambers Asia Pacific.
