Barry.Nilsson. Continues To Expand National Family Law Team

Thursday, 19 May 2022

National law firm Barry.Nilsson. (BN) has announced three new appointments to its expanding national family law practice. Joining BN’s Brisbane office are:

  • Meagan Murrell, Senior Associate
  • Aaron Wilson, Senior Associate
  • Erin Cunningham, Solicitor

The new hires join BN following a particularly busy period of growth leading up to the end of 2021, including the expansion of their family law practice into WA, the launch of their mediation services, and the strategic appointment of special counsel Genevieve Morgan to their growing Sydney team.

Family Law principal, Geoff Sinclair, said the firm’s recent growth as well as successfully securing new talent in the current market reflects BN’s position as a preferred employer, being named Australasian Lawyer’s Employer of Choice for the last three consecutive years.

“We know demand remains extremely high for skilled lawyers, and quality candidates are in the driver’s seat when it comes to picking and choosing from job offers. These appointments demonstrate Barry.Nilsson. is a preferred firm for talented lawyers like Meagan, Aaron and Erin.”

“We have a long and proud history in family law, having specialised in this area since we opened our doors in 1963. Throughout our national expansion over recent years, we’ve maintained our reputation for providing the highest quality legal expertise, while still fostering a culture that supports nurturing teams of outstanding lawyers.”

“Our people give us our competitive edge, and these appointments are the result of our commitment to creating an environment that attracts the best and the brightest.”

Having worked exclusively in family law since 2011, Meagan Murrell brings significant experience in all areas of family law, including complex property settlements, difficult parenting arrangements including those involving allegations of risk, and child support arrangements, agreements and disputes.

Prior to joining BN, Aaron Wilson worked in private practice as well as for Legal Aid Queensland in Violence Prevention and Women’s Advocacy, where he focused on parenting, property and domestic violence matters.

Erin Cunningham brings two years’ experience as a Deputy Associate in the then Federal Circuit Court of Australia, in Brisbane and North Queensland, where she was exposed to a broad range of family law disputes. She is also a regular volunteer at community legal centres across Queensland.
