The Sydney office of Colin Biggers & Paisley has acquired 12 new staff members, with the former property team from Morgan Lewis joining the firm on 1 July 2013.

The group comprises four support staff and eight fee earners, including partners Rebecca Breen and Mark Morgan and senior associates Susan Bellamy and Bob Miljevic.

"We are delighted and we feel very privileged that these outstanding people have decided to join our firm," said managing partner Dunstan de Souza. "They are leading experts in what they do, they have an excellent reputation and a great client base.

"The addition of this new team translates into a 50% revenue growth for our property division nationally. One of the principles of our long-term strategy is to be a national leader in the field of property law and this expansion of our firm is helping us to achieve that goal."
