Interlaw partner firm in Australia, Hunt & Hunt, has announced Brett Hearnden as its New South Wales Managing Partner, with Jim Harrowell stepping down from his third stint in the role.  

Jim has been instrumental in the success of Hunt & Hunt and the driving focus behind the firm’s growth, including his tenure as chair of Interlaw and, most recently, the merger with Capello Rowe in Griffith.

Under Brett’s leadership the firm will continue to expand. Commenting on his appointment, Brett said:

“We will drive growth in key areas including agribusiness and water law – an important component of our further expansion in rural areas. I am keen to replicate our successful merger with Cappello Rowe in Griffith and increasing our focus on recruitment.

“For our team, 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 with a contemporary and flexible approach to operations.

“I welcome this opportunity and look forward to working together with our team, our clients and communities.”
