Australia: Sparke Helmore further expands Insurance practice
Last Updated: 28 November 2014

Sparke Helmore Lawyers is pleased to welcome Helen Stavridis to the firm's Insurance Group.

Helen, who is based in Adelaide, is an experienced general liability insurance lawyer with a strong background in professional indemnity. She joins the firm from DW Fox Tucker in Adelaide, where she was a partner in the Insurance & Risk Management team. Helen has a broad legal background, having worked in both the public and private sectors and is recognised as one of Australia's leading insurance and alternative dispute resolution lawyers.

Michael Dwyer, who leads the statutory classes and general liability team in Adelaide and is also the Managing Partner of the Adelaide office, said: "Helen is a highly respected insurance practitioner in the South Australian market and we are thrilled that she has joined the firm. Her expertise will be a valuable addition to our already strong national insurance capabilities."

Helen's appointment follows several other insurance appointments this year, including the lateral recruitment of Julie Kinnear, as a partner in the Insurance Group in Adelaide, Chris Wood as a partner in the Insurance Group in Sydney, and Natasha Crowe and Nick Calnan, who joined the State Compensation and Liability teams in Melbourne and Sydney, respectively. Riaan Piek was also recently promoted to partner in the Insurance Group in our Perth office.
