The Big Interview
Raisa Conchin has been a fast riser. Promoted to special counsel at Wotton + Kearney in July 2013 and moving to Brisbane to help establish its office there, her performance meant she was promoted to partner only a year later, eight years after her admission. At 32, Raisa Conchin is now a key member of the Brisbane leadership team, assisting managing partner Paul Spezza with running the office. With a specialty in professional indemnity, including claims against valuers, financial planners, accountants, stockbrokers and mortgage brokers, Conchin has particular responsibility for building the Brisbane financial lines practice. Recent matters include representing a director in a $60m class action under a D&O policy, representing a valuer on a $25m commercial property claim, and advising an insurer on indemnity for fraud claims by over 100 clients against a financial planner. Now co-head of the firm’s financial lines focus group, Conchin has set her sights on growing the firm’s practice presence in Queensland, and is an active member of the YIPs Queensland branch.
