Interlaw’s partner firm in Australia, Hunt & Hunt Lawyers, has announced that it will merge with full-service Sydney firm, Cappello Rowe Lawyers. This major opportunity will allow both firms to expand, grow and provide more extensive service and legal support to Hunt & Hunt’s clients and contacts.

The merger will officially take place on 1 October 2020, with Cappello Rowe’s Sydney team joining the Hunt & Hunt offices in their new Bligh Street offices from 19th October. All Hunt & Hunt team members are remaining in their current roles and will continue to support their clients with the same level of personalised service they have come to expect.   

Cappello Rowe Griffith bring with them further experience in the areas of commercial law, employment law and family law.   Importantly, the firm’s clients will continue to deal with exactly the same people they always have. The only change will be that the firm will have access to more resources, expertise and knowledge to support clients better.   

Commenting on the merger, Jim Harrowell, partner and principal at Hunt & Hunt, said:   

“Cappello Rowe bring extensive skills, knowledge and resources in Family Law, Commercial Litigation and Property Law and this merger will enable us to offer greater legal service and support to our clients.”   

“My fellow partners and I are extremely excited about the move and hope that our clients and contacts join us in celebrating the news. We greatly look forward to continuing to work closely together.”
