Barry.Nilsson. bolsters national family law offering with senior hire in Sydney

1 December 2021

Barry.Nilsson. has appointed Genevieve Morgan as a Special Counsel in its family law team in Sydney.

Ms Morgan, who was most recently at Broun Abrahams Burreket, is an Accredited Family Law Specialist and Collaborative Lawyer, with experience across a broad range of family law matters including those involving complex financial structures, parenting matters, spouse maintenance and child support.

Ms Morgan is a strong proponent of dispute resolution, where appropriate, to resolve issues that arise from the breakdown of a relationship.

“Communication is key in the work I do and how I interact with my clients. Given the nature of what my clients are experiencing, it is vital that they are fully informed at each stage of the process to ensure that they feel empowered to make the best decisions for their future,” said Ms Morgan.

Barry.Nilsson. CEO Graeme Walsh said Ms Morgan’s appointment supports the firm’s strategy to establish a full service offering to family law clients nationally.

“Ms Morgan’s expertise across the many facets of family law, in addition to her dispute resolution skills, complements our national strategy and further bolsters the strong base we already have in Sydney,” said Mr Walsh.

Mr Walsh said Barry.Nilsson. was proud of its dispute resolution capacity, such that our national Family Law team can help the overwhelming majority of our clients resolve their disputes without court proceedings.

“In addition to growing our practice geographically over the years, we have also focused on expanding our family law service offering to include mediation services, expatriate and international services, along with the addition of our Wills & Estates team in 2018,”

Ms Morgan will work closely with Family Law Principal Melanie Rubin in building Barry.Nilsson.’s family law practice in NSW.

Ms Morgan is listed in the 2019 and 2021 editions of Doyle’s Guide as a Rising Star in Family Law.

Barry.Nilsson. has a long, proud history in family law, having specialised in this discipline since opening its doors in 1963. Now with family law offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, the firm works flexibly with clients across Australia and internationally.

Barry.Nilsson.’s national Family Law team has received a raft of technical and individual accolades in the prestigious Doyle’s Guide and Best Lawyers, including First Tier Family & Divorce Law Firm in Brisbane and Australia, Lawyer of the Year for Family Law and Family Law Mediation, and Family Law Rising Star to name a few.
