Queensland compensation law firm Travis Schultz & Partners (TSP) has expanded it partnership group to eight with three new Partners announced in 2024.
Kane Stegeman is the newest member of the partnership group. TSP Managing Partner Travis Schultz and Kane previously worked together for eight years at Schultz Toomey O’Brien Lawyers.
Travis said: “I had the privilege of working with Kane for many years earlier in my legal career, so I have seen first-hand, the diligence, compassion, and professionalism with which he plies his trade.
“When Kane said he would like to join us and bring his clients across to TSP, I jumped at the chance to be able to work with him once again.”
Kane has a background in personal injury law as both a defendant and plaintiff lawyer. He is a Doyle’s Guide celebrated lawyer since 2017 and his personal injury expertise is recognised in motor vehicle accidents, workplace injury, total permanent disability claims, and public liability insurance.
“Travis has built a remarkable team by embracing a culture of progress and advancement that has seen many rising stars reach leadership in their careers,” Kane said. “As somebody who is values-led, I am most looking forward to being a part of the people-first culture at TSP.”
This leadership in the firm is further bolstered with the promotion of two Special Counsels to Partners within a year of joining TSP.
Greg Spinda is in the Sunshine Coast office and Emma Davidson in the Brisbane office.
“Our leaders of the future have arrived,” Travis said.
“Greg and Emma exemplify all we stand for at TSP. As a result of their hard work and dedication to their clients, their careers have moved from strength to strength. And, more than this, they are both passionate advocates for helping others and giving back to the community – an important values pillar here at TSP.
“Greg is one of the great technical lawyers in the compensation law field in Queensland. He is an accredited specialist in personal injury law and has been very active in professional organisations such as the Australian Lawyers Alliance and the Queensland Law Society.
“He has already carved out a reputation for excellence in all that he does.
“Aside from Emma’s substantial experience and expertise, she offers her time generously as a committee member for the Women’s Lawyers Association of Queensland and at the Caxton Legal Centre.
“Emma is a willing mentor, a giving colleague, a trusted advisor and an a truly great ‘people person’. Her contribution to values and our culture, can’t be underestimated.”
