Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger was established in January 1981 as Griffits and Jackson. The original concept was for a small partnership of experienced barristers and solicitors to concentrate on more substantial civil litigation and associated advice, with the capacity to do all our own advocacy work. The composition of the firm changed when Peter Griffits retired as a partner in March 2001 and the firm was renamed Jackson and Tremayne. Philip Jackson and Geoff Tremayne practised as Jackson and Tremayne from 2001 until Mr Jackson retired from the firm to become a barrister. From 1 January 2007, the firm became Jackson, Tremayne & Fay Lawyers when Robert Fay joined the firm as a partner and our areas of practice expanded to include conveyancing, probate and commercial law.
Our litigation practice is not a general practice. Since its inception our firm has always had a strong insurance and commercial litigation practice. Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger specialises in insurance-based advice and litigation, professional liability and conduct and personal injury and commercial litigation. Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger do not undertake work in the family law jurisdiction or criminal jurisdiction.
Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger have a high profile within the insurance industry in Tasmania and have among our clients a number of the principal insurers in the State and the Motor Accidents Insurance Board.
Our employment and industrial law practice ranges from front-end compliance and contract advice through to negotiation and advocacy in unfair dismissal, redundancy, underpayment claims and the like.
Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger regularly advise five local government authorities on a range of issues including planning, contractual and governmental issues, drafting by-laws as well as conducting litigation on their behalf.
Tremayne Fay & Rheinberger have a significant presence and experience with the Hobart property market and have two experienced paralegals assisting Mr Fay.
