Leading law firm and AusBiotech member DibbsBarker is expanding with plans to open a new office in Melbourne.
According to managing partner, Stephen Purcell, the establishment of an on-the-ground presence in Melbourne is an important step for the firm as it looks to consolidate its offering across Australia’s east coast.
While the initial focus of its Melbourne office will be property, as a core strategic priority of the firm, it is also considered a positive move for its life sciences practice.
"We also see great prospects for expansion across other sectors on which the firm is strategically focused, such as financial services, insurance, life sciences and healthcare, as well as practice areas such as intellectual property and technology. In the coming months we will actively pursue opportunities in these areas," said Mr Purcell.
The new Melbourne office will be located at 360 Collins Street, with the doors to open on 1 December 2016.
