Partner Penny Moore joins Moray & Agnew

Media Release

Partner Penny Moore has left Jarman McKenna to join the Perth office of Moray & Agnew.

Moore is well known and highly regarded in the Western Australian market and is the only woman on a panel of ten acting on behalf of the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA).

Her expertise is broad and includes advising on motor vehicle, public liability, employer’s liability, workers’ compensation, solicitor’s negligence, medical negligence and industrial diseases claims. Moore’s experience includes being appointed a barrister and a solicitor in the Supreme Court of Western Australia, the High Court of Australia and previously at Phillips Fox Perth (later Lavan Legal).

For Moray & Agnew this signifies rapid growth in the insurance market in Western Australia with the continuing expansion of the Perth office, now in its fifth year, and the rounding out of an already strong insurance practice.

Managing partner Michael Pitt comments ‘we are delighted with Penny’s appointment which further strengthens our ability to service our insurance client base across all lines of business and our strategy of being a leading provider of legal services.’
