Brett Hearnden has been hired as a managing partner by Hunt and Hunt Lawyers, after a merger between local law firm Cappello Rowe and the larger business.
Cappello Rowe merged with Hunt and Hunt Lawyers on October 1, bringing the firm to Griffith.
Mr Hearnden will now be a NSW managing partner, taking over from Jim Harrowell AM. Mr Harrowell was the NSW partner three times.
Mr Hearnden was keen to expand the services available to clients and expand the firm regionally.
"I will also be driving expansion in some of our other growth areas, including Agribusiness and Water Law which is an important component of our further expansion into rural areas," he said.
He described his plan going forward as an opportunity to raise the firm's profile.
"I will be seeking to raise our profile and reputation as a firm with strong community values, with a team of dedicated, diverse, dynamic and flexible professionals..." a statement released by the firm read.
