Slater & Gordon has acquired the specialist family law firm Rod Powe Lawyers in Maitland, NSW.

Slater & Gordon has acquired practices in the past that had a component of family law work but it has now made its first acquisition of a practice that focuses primarily on family law.

Ken Fowlie, Executive Director of Slater & Gordon, confirms that the acquisition is aligned with the firm’s strategy of expanding its market share in family law. It will also aid in consolidating its overall presence in the Hunter Valley region. Slater & Gordon has existing offices in Newcastle and Cessnock.

Ken Fowlie believes that a likely natural development of the Maitland office is for it to become a service centre for potential personal injury clients.
