We were honoured to host the Inaugural Fred Swaab Honorary Address on 23 October 2018 and to have the Hon. P A Bergin SC, deliver the key note speech.
The evening was a chance to bring together family, friends, colleagues and clients of Swaab to remember and acknowledge Fred’s achievements.
It was also an opportunity to announce the winner of the Inaugural Fred Swaab Award that recognises an individual who has inspired others through imagination, entrepreneurship, innovation and generosity of spirit.
As the Hon. P A Bergin SC shared:
“The unanimous verdict is that Fred was an extraordinary man of inspiration for others and with a professional drive and appetite for work that was apparently insatiable.”
“Fred was always searching to find better ways to assist clients this was not merely a search for the commercial success of the firm, it was also to strive for excellence and help those in need of good shepherding through legal quagmires and conflicts. Fred understood that the legal system expected the delivery of honest, careful and professional advice in all aspects of the Firm’s services.”
