Travis Schultz & Partners has announced that Bennett & Philp’s personal injury team will join the firm.
Under the agreement, Bennett & Philp (B&P) Directors and QLS Accredited Specialists in personal injury law Mark O’Connor and Trent Johnson, and paralegal Sarah van Kampen, will join Travis Schultz & Partners (TSP).
TSP Managing Principal Travis Schultz said the merger would change the personal injury legal landscape in Brisbane for the better.
B&P Director Mark O’Connor will move with the department he built and led for the past 33 years, ensuring a smooth transition for clients prior to his retirement in the coming years.
Mr O’Connor said recent succession planning at B&P provided an opportunity to review the future of the compensation part of the practice.
TSP is to move its Brisbane office from Eagle Street to a new location in Adelaide Street, allowing the B&P team to be better accommodated.
