Growing Pains as Creevey Russell Lawyers Turns Ten

Leading Queensland legal firm Creevey Russell Lawyers is enjoying unprecedented growth across all of its practice areas as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Creevey Russell Co-Founder and Principal Dan Creevey said it was an exciting milestone for the South East Queensland based full service law firm, which now has 28 staff across three offices.

“There has been plenty achieved over the past 10 years and the firm’s accomplishments over that time are a great credit to the hard working staff at our offices in the Brisbane CBD, Toowoomba and Roma,” Mr Creevey said.

“We will enjoy these celebrations but it’s also a time to reflect and thank our clients for their support over the last decade. We are fully committed to continuing to provide great service to regional Queensland.”

Mr Creevey said the firm had built a strong team and was looking to support further growth with the addition of three more experienced commercial/property and family law lawyers.

“Last year was one of our busiest with two class actions in progress, which involved much travel thoughout regional Queensland and NSW, while we refined our practice areas to family, commercial / property, crime and litigation, estates and elder law,” he said.

“We recently engaged an experienced practice manager to allow us to focus on our clients, while highly experienced senior commercial and property lawyer Helen Kay has joined the firm as a Special Counsel.”

Mr Creevey said the 10th anniversary was also significant for the firm’s senior legal team including Co-Principal Clare Creevey and Partners Damian Bell and Tom Rynders.

“Clare has been a massive contributor to the firm and we were thrilled when she was recognised by Doyles Guide as one of Queensland’s leading legal practitioners in the field of medical negligence and malpractice,” he said.

“Damian joined the commercial arm of Creevey Russell Lawyers four years ago and his extensive experience both in legal and commercial business in Australia and overseas has been invaluable, particularly when we engage with banks for our clients in financial difficulty.

“Tom has spent most of his legal career at Creevey Russell Lawyers and it has been delightful to watch his progression to being a Partner.”

Mr Creevey said other highlights for the firm over the past 10 years were its Native Title work and also the launch of a specialist criminal law division as part of its wide range of services to clients.
