Award-winning compensation law firm, Travis Schultz & Partners (TSP), is delighted to announce the appointment of John Connellan as Senior Associate in the Brisbane office. With this appointment, TSP continues to expand its team of legal experts, now totalling 22 lawyers across Queensland.

Managing Partner Travis Schultz says “John’s specialised experience and dedication to securing just results for his clients align perfectly with TSP values.

“His appointment reflects our vision to build a team of highly qualified experts that also stand behind our pursuit of a values-driven approach to law.

“We are thrilled to have him join the team as we continue to strengthen our presence in Brisbane,” Mr Schultz said.

Prior to joining TSP, Mr Connellan served as a barrister and accredited mediator, further enhancing his ability to provide exceptional legal support to his clients.

Tim McClymont, Partner at TSP, says “John’s strengths in dispute resolution can make a substantial difference to the outcome of a case and save the cost and worry of an unnecessary trial.”

Mr Connellan’s expertise extends to various areas of sports law, including governance and compliance, and the liability of clubs and volunteers, and he holds a Law Society Diploma in Sports Law.

“John has a passion for sports and as a former intercounty Gaelic footballer in Ireland, he has a natural drive and competitive edge which ensures he gets the best outcome for his clients,” Mr McClymont adds.

Mr Connellan shared his excitement about joining TSP, saying, “I am honoured to be part of a firm that is renowned for its commitment to justice and community and well-being. TSP’s focus on putting clients first truly sets it apart in the legal community.    

“In an era where the bottom line often dictates business decisions, the firm stands apart by ensuring clients receive the ‘lion’s share’ of any settlement – that’s predominately what attracted me to joining the firm.

“In addition, the firm’s strategic stance on cases typically overlooked by others in the legal fraternity underlines the commitment to justice for all, not just the most profitable or straightforward cases,” Mr Connellan adds.
