New Appointments within Coleman Greig’s Professional Team

Coleman Greig Lawyers is pleased to announce the recent promotion of three outstanding, and highly deserving members of our professional legal staff, Karina Ralston (Family Law), Louisa Daniels (Wills and Estate Planning) and Ricky Raad (Commercial Property).

With each of these promotions coming into effect from 1 July 2018, the firm’s CEO Warrick McLean noted that “these appointments have come at an exciting time for Coleman Greig, with the firm’s recent opening of our new offices in Penrith’s CBD, we are looking forward to witnessing further growth, both internal and external, within the Greater Western Sydney region”.

Having been appointed as Principal of the firm in recognition of both her leadership ability and exceedingly high quality client work within Coleman Greig’s Family Law team, Karina Ralston is set to head the new Penrith office’s Family Law team. Karina’s appointment comes after her recent accreditation as a Family Law Mediator and Arbitrator, which will allow her to further assist Family Law clients with regard to a range of dispute resolution alternatives.

Further to her Mediation and Arbitration qualifications, Karina is also an Accredited Family Law Specialist, allowing her to provide clients with an especially high level of knowledge and practical ability with regard to Family Law matters.

Joining Karina in this round of internal appointments is Louisa Daniels, Associate within the firm’s Wills and Estate Planning team. Joining Coleman Greig in early 2015, Louisa has since shown an exceptional level of drive and passion for her work within the Wills and Estate Planning team, where she regularly assists clients with everything from drafting wills and preparing testamentary trusts, to the appointment of enduring guardianship.

With similarly impressive results having been achieved through his extensive work on a range of both government and private high end leasing matters, Ricky Raad, a highly talented and valued member of Coleman Greig’s Commercial Property team, has been given the position of Associate. Through his new appointment, Ricky has been recognised for his notably high level of client satisfaction, along with his ability to effectively project manage high volumes of work, ensuring consistently speedy turnaround times and often saving clients significant resources.

In a firm-wide announcement of the above appointments, Warrick McLean explained that “Coleman Greig is proud to offer Karina, Ricky and Louisa the opportunity to take the next step in their legal careers, and truly look forward to having this trio continue to offer our clients the high level of legal service that we, as Western Sydney’s leading law firm, have become known for”.

Please join Coleman Greig in congratulating Ricky Raad and Louisa Daniels on their appointment to the position of Associate, and Karina Ralston on her promotion to the role of Principal of the firm.
