We are extremely pleased that two of our most experienced solicitors, Sebastian Olsen and Tim Baumann, have accepted appointments as Senior Associates, effective from 1 July 2014.
Sebastian has been with the firm for over ten years, starting as a research cadet before completing two years articles of clerkship. Since being admitted as a solicitor in July 2008, Sebastian has always worked exceptionally hard on his clients’ behalf, and has achieved some fantastic outcomes with his considered, methodical approach. His contributions to the firm include commitment to all aspects of our pro bono activities and the occasional guest appearance with the MurphySchmidt touch football team.
Tim was also admitted in December 2008 and has been with MurphySchmidt for over 7 years. He worked as a research cadet and articled clerk before practising in accident compensation litigation. More recently, Tim has pursued his interest in wills and estates and is now practising almost exclusively in that area with our Senior Adviser, Gerry Murphy. Tim’s personality is as big as his stature and he is a favourite with staff and clients alike.
