Cadetship Graduate to join Coleman Greig Commercial Litigation Team
Coleman Greig is delighted to announce that one of our Cadetship Program graduates, Neil Palmer has been admitted this month and will stay on with the firm as part of the Coleman Greig Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team.
Neil has been a credit to the firm over the past six years after joining Coleman Greig as a Cadet in 2008. As part of the program, Neil gained valuable experience in Commercial Advice, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Employment Law, Property and Finance, and Family Law, and received ongoing professional support and guidance from various mentors at Coleman Greig.
While completing his Bachelor of Business and Commerce/Bachelor of Laws, Neil also completed an Honours degree in Management in which he was awarded the UWS Honours Scholarship and graduated with First Class Honours.
On top of this, Neil was one of ten students nation-wide selected to present his thesis, "Implementing Corporate Social Responsibility in Medium-Sized Law Firms in Western Sydney: An Action Learning Approach", at the 2011 National Honours Colloquium. He went onto use this study to assist the firm in implementing the Coleman Greig GWS Executive Challenge in 2013 which raised over $50,000 for Northcott and St. Gabriel’s School.
In early 2014, while completing a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice at the College of Law, Neil accepted a fulltime law graduate position with Coleman Greig's Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team in which he has been working exclusively for the past four years.
Neil is excited to continue to provide advice and assistance to Coleman Greig clients in achieving practical and commercially beneficial outcomes. His main areas of focus are commercial disputes, intellectual property disputes, and disputed wills and family provision claims.
