Law firm welcomes new partners as others retire
One of Woy Woy's oldest law firms has welcomed a brother-sister duo to the role of senior partners after its current senior partners announced their retirement.
Peninsula Law has welcomed Mr Peter Steele and Ms Kylie Tritton to the role of senior partners after Mr Geoffrey Corah and Mr Allan Bingham announced their retirement plans at the end of 2018.
The appointment of Mr Steele and Ms Tritton is a unique one as their father Mr David Steele was a founding partner of Ferry, Steele and Walker which would go on to Merge with Bingham, Turnell and Corah in 1999 to form Peninsula Law.
Both Mr Steele and Ms Tritton became attracted to law after being inspired by their father.
The pair have worked at Peninsula Law as solicitors for a number of years with Mr Steele specialising insurance claims, motor vehicle claims, negligence claims, workplace matters, and commercial, business advice and Ms Tritton in conveyancing, estate planning, probate, civil and commercial, land and environment and NCAT matters.
Mr Steele said he and his sister were excited to be progressing onto the role of partner with a firm so close to their hearts.
""The broad range of legal work that interests me most is available on the Central Coast; working here allows me to have a great work-life balance and I have honestly never wanted to live anywhere else," Mr Steele said.
Mr Corah said he had watched the firm grow from strength to strength over the years and said he felt confident leaving it in the hands of his team.
"Peninsula Law has gone from strength to strength over the last few decades and we have an enthusiastic team with some strong younger solicitors coming through the ranks.
"I am confident that the firm is well placed to become bigger and better, helping more and more local clients through their legal issues," he said.
