DW Fox Tucker Partners With One of SA’s Oldest Law Firms

If you’ve lived in South Australia for any length of time, you may have heard of Mouldens. Founded in 1851 Mouldens are highly respected and officially one of the oldest firms in the state… so it’s with great pleasure we announce that as of 15 May 2017, DW Fox Tucker and Mouldens have joined together.

Brand new Family Law Services & Stronger Dispute Resolution.

This new partnership with our old friends at Mouldens means two big things for DW Fox Tucker clients. To start with, we’ll be offering Family Law services for the first time, with a team headed up by Mouldens’ former partner Joanne Cliff, one of South Australia’s most recognised legal professionals in the field. Extending our suite of services into first class Family Law has been an ambition of DWFT for some time, so we’re delighted to have found the right partners to achieve this.

The addition of the former Mouldens partners will also strengthen DW Fox Tuckers know-how and expertise in commercial & civil litigation, alternative dispute resolution, defamation, insurance claims and professional negligence. Former Mouldens’ partner Debra Lane is a true legal mastermind across these kinds of matters and we’re really looking forward to introducing her to our clients.

Great Minds Think Alike When it Comes to Serving South Australia.

There are many reasons why this is a perfect synergy, but by far the most important is the shared philosophy in serving South Australia. All of us have a strong, non-negotiable focus on serving the local community, with highly specialised, truly cost effective services and without the distractions which come from being part of a big group.

Reaffirming this mutual belief, Debra Lane said “DWFT’s focus on South Australia was a critical factor in the decision to join the two practices, as well as the fact that like Mouldens, our new partner is not part of a national or international law firm. We’re really looking forward to offering a much wider range of services through the new firm.”

DWFT managing director Joe DeRuvo is similarly excited about the joining of minds, telling us “This coming together reinforces our commitment to providing the South Australian community with highly targeted legal assistance, while remaining at a size that enables us to offer strong, affordable and genuinely responsive services.”

“With Mouldens joining we have expanded our specialities to offer advice and representation on all aspects of family law, defamation and advice on insurance arrangements and policies, as well as professional negligence and regulation… it’s a significant step in the growth of this firm, and a proud moment indeed to bring on board a team with such a longstanding and highly regarded reputation.”

Everyone at DW FoxTucker warmly welcomes our new colleagues and we’re looking forward to a future of cracking success on behalf of our clients.
