Sparke Helmore Lawyers is pleased to announce it has officially merged with Perth-based insurance law firm, Jarman McKenna. The combined team will operate under the Sparke Helmore Lawyers name from today.   

The firm welcomes 52 practitioners and support staff, including five partners who will join the Insurance Group. Piet Jarman, Rani Aria Retnam, Garry Nutt, Chris Rimmer and Jonathan Wyatt will join the partnership.

"Welcome to our new team members in Perth—it's fantastic to have such a highly-regarded group of skilled and talented lawyers join our firm," said Phillip Salem, National Managing Partner.

"This is an exciting new chapter for Sparke Helmore, as our expanded team of lawyers will enable us to provide an even broader range of insurance law expertise to clients in Western Australia and nationally. It is a critical step in growing our national market position, particularly in the insurance space, and in realising our vision of being a truly world-class Australian law firm."
