Leading Queensland legal firm Creevey Russell Lawyers is proud to be a corporate supporter of the 2019 Longreach Cup, the biggest racing event in outback Queensland.
Creevey Russell Principal Dan Creevey said the big race day on Saturday, September 29, was an exciting event for the region and a great chance for a community that has endured tough times to enjoy country racing at its finest.
“Creevey Russell Lawyers is delighted to be involved as a sponsor of the Longreach Cup and we are looking forward to being present on the day and mixing with members of a wonderful community,” Winton-raised Mr Creevey said.
“We take great pride in the fact that Creevey Russell Lawyers is a rural and regional firm and we are always looking to give back to those communities.
“It is no secret that many of the state’s regional communities have been doing it tough for many years due to a wide range of economic and environmental factors.”
Mr Creevey said he maintained close regional ties having grown up in Winton where his father Noel was a local policeman and grandfather Jim Gaffney managed the power station.
“I go back home regularly and our firm has many clients in the region so it’s great to be able show our support on the big race day,” he said.
“It’s important to stay closely connected to the people in these communities and listen to their concerns, including about any legal issues they are experiencing which can include problems with vegetation and stock routes, dog baiting, rural transactions and criminal matters.
“Creevey Russell Lawyers has always had its finger on the pulse of rural Queensland and our agribusiness team members have broad experience in issues of concern to landholders.”
