The Rose Litigation Lawyers professional staff attended the firm’s annual Professional Staff Retreat held at Mooloolaba in June 2019. We are very proud and excited to have a fantastic team with a great culture and dynamics, which enables our Firm to go from strength to strength.

During the retreat, we discussed our firm’s values, characteristics, culture and behaviours that help us achieve our vision. All members of our team exhibit our core values each and every day in order to achieve the firm’s vision.
