The Partner of the Year award presentations are seen as an opportunity for those within the legal industry to celebrate the significant achievements of senior Australian lawyers who demonstrate leadership, technical expertise, mentorship and business development abilities within their organisations.
"I view this win as a team effort. The award is fantastic recognition of the quality of my team and the people I work with. Every single day we put our heart and soul into our work and deliver the best results for our clients." Malcolm Gittoes-Caesar, 2020 Family Law Partner of the Year.
CEO, Warrick McLean said "We are extremely proud of Malcolm, and the example he sets for his team in terms of the quality of the work he produces but more importantly the courage he has to continually raise awareness in the mental health space. Malcolm has the ability to be vulnerable and this is what makes him a true warrior to those struggling with mental health both within Coleman Greig and the legal industry."
On Malcolm's win, Head of People and Capability, Elicha Reitsma, said that the firm has many initiatives and activities to support mental health and raise awareness in this space, but there is nothing more powerful than Malcolm sharing his own story and always being open to talk to his team and those within the legal industry when they are struggling.
Coleman Greig Lawyers is incredibly proud to acknowledge Malcolm's well-deserved success as winner of the 2020 Family Law Partner of the Year and Wellness Advocate of the Year Award and looks forward to witnessing the continued growth and leadership that he continues to example.
The firm would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all other finalists including Coleman Greig's Head of Property, Andrew Grima, who was also nominated in the Wellness Advocate of the Year category.
