From large to boutique

From large to boutique

By Andrea de Souza

Megan Caines is a senior associate at Polaris Lawyers, a boutique personal injury law firm. She made the move after more than seven years at Slater and Gordon Lawyers. What inspired you to make the move? I am really grateful for my time at Slater and Gordon but I was ready for a new challenge and the timing felt right. It was time to get out of my comfort zone, to move into a new environment and learn new skills. How has your everyday practice of law changed? The file volume is significantly lower. Polaris Lawyers has committed to keeping the file numbers of each lawyer “low” when compared with the industry standard. This has a flow on effect on the way you practice, what you're able to do on a file and how much contact you have with each client. Files can have a more individualised approach.
