“The Australian Law Awards is the pinnacle of events for the nation’s legal profession,” Ms Ryan

“This year’s finalists radiate an outstanding level of professionalism, dedication and drive to take the business of law to greater heights, from the managing partners and general counsel to the barristers, legal scholars and young guns.

“It is our honour to host this event for the 18th year running. On behalf of the team, I’d like to congratulate all of this year’s finalists. We look forward to celebrating with you soon.”

Glenn Vassallo, Managing Director at GRT Lawyers said he was humbled by the nomination.

same time as GRT Lawyers (in 2011). The law firm works in close integration with the GRT
Foundation, providing financial and administrative support.
