Quality and consistency through collaboration

We are proud to announce that our Commercial Insurance team and Veronica Truong from our Intellectual Property & Technology team have been recognised as Excellence Awardees in the upcoming Australasian Law Awards.

The Commercial Insurance team has been recognised as an Excellence Awardee in the Specialist Firm of the Year category. The Commercial Insurance team achieved several industry accolades during 2021 and was also reappointed to a number of major panel tenders. With national coverage, the team is one of the most preeminent and largest insurance practices in Australia, advising 540 clients across all major product lines. The team has global reach with a substantial London practice and is the sole Australian representative of Global Insurance Law Connect (an independent network).

Veronica Truong, Lawyer, of our Corporate and Commercial team and based in Sydney has also been recognised as an Excellence Awardee, in the category of Young Private Practice Lawyers of the Year.

During 2021, Veronica acted on a range of major technology transactions and advised on novel privacy issues across APAC jurisdictions. Veronica acted on deals and supported clients in ICT, government, infrastructure, financial services, health and aged care, and telecommunications sectors. You might also recall Veronica from the firm’s video series on data security, which provided an engaging introduction to privacy laws. The video series was innovative, accessible, and casual, and resulted in nearly 1000 views across four videos.

Dalvin Chien, Partner said "Veronica is an incredibly diligent, hardworking, and intelligent lawyer.  Although she may not always be the loudest in the room, there is a measured strength and resilience in her approach to the quickly evolving technology world that she practices in."

Winners will be announced and celebrated at the highly anticipated awards gala on Thursday 19 May at the Hilton Sydney.

Congratulations again to the Commercial Insurance team and Veronica, we wish them the best of luck!
