CBP adds Kennedys partner
Monday, 30 April 2012
Colin Biggers & Paisley has added another partner to its insurance practice, this time in Sydney.
Former Kennedys partner Adrian Howie has joined the firm only a month ahead of its merger with Melbourne boutique Monahan + Rowell.
Howie began his career with Minter Ellison in 1968 and became a partner in 1976. During his time with Minters he worked at the Sydney and Canberra offices handling a range of property, commercial and litigation work, including some interesting criminal matters, before settling in the insurance practice. He proceeded to lead the group for a number of years, primarily focusing on the areas of professional indemnity and directors & officers insurance. He then joined UK-based Kennedys in 2006.
Throughout his career Howie has maintained a non-litigious practice, regularly providing advice to commercial clients on contractual and broad commercial issues. He has also had extensive experience with domestic tribunals, most commonly advising on maintaining procedural fairness.
