Bernie O’Sullivan Lawyers to join Sladen Legal

We’re delighted to announce that Bernie O’Sullivan Lawyers will be joining Sladen Legal, effective 1 October 2019. Coming together under the Sladen Legal brand this development will add depth and expertise to our already impressive team of Estate Planning, Tax, Business, Superannuation, Trusts and Dispute Resolution lawyers.

Sladen Legal’s CEO Andrew Barnes said the team are thrilled to welcome the Bernie O Sullivan Lawyers’ principals and staff. “Bernie O’Sullivan, Rob Warnock and Patrick Cussen are held in the highest regard by our principals. In the past we have sat with them on various industry committees and presented alongside them to professional working groups across many industry associations. Their core values and professional standards mirror ours. It will be wonderful to have their expertise in our office and available to our clients.”

Focusing on the needs of their clients, Bernie O’Sullivan, says the merger is exciting for both clients and staff. “Our practice was established in 2011. Strong growth in our client base and the complexity of their affairs has generated a demand for a greater depth in resources and a broader range of legal services. Joining Sladen Legal gives our clients access to highly regarded expertise in other practice areas including commercial, property, employment law, commercial litigation and intellectual property. We have already informed our clients and the response has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.”

The respected team are thrilled to have joined forces with the larger firm. “Sladen Legal’s robust graduate recruitment and professional development program and significant investment in cutting-edge technology and systems is something our team is particularly excited about.” said Mr O’Sullivan.

We have recently expanded our premises to include both levels 5 and 6 of the Lantern Building at Collins Square. The team from Bernie O’Sullivan Lawyers will soon call our modern and impressive offices home.

While Sladen Legal continues to grow one thing that has not and will not change is the firm’s values and client service. “Just as Bernie O Sullivan Lawyers and Sladen Legal have always done we will continue to offer our clients a personalised approach, taking the time to understand what is important to them, ensuring that our work reflects their passion, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit.” said Mr Barnes.
