National firm welcomes increased capability in its Canberra office

Media Release

The announcement that Roger Hambly, a pre-eminent practitioner in ACT workers compensation law, has joined Moray & Agnew’s Canberra office confirms the position of the law firm as a national leader in this specialised area of insurance law.

Roger practises exclusively in personal injuries litigation, particularly workers compensation claims. Over a career of 20 plus years, Roger has established an enviable record of securing highly satisfactory outcomes in numerous workers compensation claims on behalf of most major workers compensation insurers and many self-insured private sector employers. His clients include some of Australia’s most well-known companies.

In addition, Roger has had frequent contact with workers compensation regulators, has worked on secondment with WorkCover ACT, and assisted with both policy development and drafting of amendments to legislation related to the ACT workers compensation scheme.

In welcoming another partner to the Canberra office, John Solomon, Managing Partner of Moray & Agnew Canberra, said ‘Roger’s expertise is an invaluable addition to our team, which is seeing an increase in demand for workers compensation legal services. His reputation as a skilled practitioner in this sensitive area reinforces Moray & Agnew’s profile as a national provider with specialised knowledge and experience in the field of workers compensation claims.’

Michael Pitt, National Managing Partner, added ‘Roger’s significant ‘hands on’ experience and demonstrated skills in claims management will boost our ability to achieve positive outcomes for our clients. This appointment is an important addition to our current capabilities in Canberra as well as reinforcing the importance of this area of practice to our firm and our strong commitment to providing across-the-board insurance law services to our clients on a national basis.’

Hambly’s appointment takes Moray & Agnew’s total partner count to 92.
