Introducing: Two partners Martin Dobson and Daniel Costanzo, join our Perth office

Media Release

Partners Martin Dobson and Daniel Costanzo lead a team of seven who join Moray & Agnew from SRB Legal. The team includes Senior Associate Joshua Wilcox and Lawyers Stephanie O’Connor and Jackson Criddle.

This significantly expands the firm’s offering for clients in the workers compensation arena and follows off the back of the recent appointment of partner Penny Moore who joined with her practice group earlier this year.

Martin Dobson has specialised in workers compensation insurance for over 30 years advising Australian and international insurers and self-insured clients. Dobson’s experience is significant and spans the gamut of complex personal and psychiatric injury and dust diseases cases.

Daniel Costanzo has over 12 years’ experience in workers compensation and personal injury cases involving complex and contentious issues relating to serious and catastrophic injuries, contractual and indemnity disputes as well as multi-party litigation and recovery proceedings. Lengthy and far reaching experience in general insurance law practice has seen him advising on numerous sensitive and high profile matters for clients.

Both Dobson and Costanzo frequently appear on behalf of clients in Western Australia’s District and Supreme Courts, the Federal Court of Australia and at Fair Work Australia hearings regarding employment-related compensation matters.
