We are very pleased at Aitken Lawyers, to announce that we have agreed to merge with Melbourne-based law firm, Russell Kennedy.
It’s a decision that has been many months in the making, following an approach earlier this year from the team at Russell Kennedy who saw us as a logical partner in the Sydney market. We know it’s the right move for the people who matter to us – our valued employees and our talented team of people.
Indeed, what became clear throughout the discussions is that Russell Kennedy and Aitken Lawyers are a natural fit. We share similar culture and values, and complementary expertise and capability.
In bringing together the respective pedigree of the two firms, we’ll be focused on building a combined offering that draws on our common strengths: a commitment to outstanding client service based on long-standing relationships, and a focus on retaining and attracting the best people.read more
