The Year Ahead

Published on February 18, 2015 by Howard Harrison

Already 2015 is shaping up to be both a busy and transformative one for Carroll & O’Dea. Bringing effect to the 2014 – 2016 Strategic Plan remains one of our top priorities for the year. We have established teams across ten key practice areas who will lead reviews of activities and develop a pipeline of new ideas for consideration by our Strategy & Planning Committee. This important strategic work will help set the firm up for new growth and fresh opportunities as we move into the future.
2015 also brings new changes to the regulations on Personal Injury, most notably in how firms can seek and attract PI clients. The impact of these changes will be most notably visible in the areas of advertising and direct marketing and it is anticipated that the sector can expect to see intense competition. Carroll & O’Dea will be guided through this period by our values and traditions that have set us apart from other Personal Injury Practices. 


Our positioning as a commercial practice firm continues to be enhanced through the value of our Primerus membership, a global network of more than 200 law firms in 40 countries around the world.  The firm will be a participant in the Primerus Asian Firm Conference to be held in Singaporeon 1 – 2 April, represented by Selwyn Black, Partner Business Law. The conference will bring firms in the Asian Pacific Region together to network and collaborate.


And partner Julia Harrison joined a prestigious panel of legal minds including retired High Court Justice Michael Kirby to consider the question “Does Talking to Yourself Make You a Better Lawyer”. The thought leadership event saw each panellist questioned as to their technology and verbal skills before being challenged on both. See how Julia and the others went here.
