Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney officially opens McCabe Curwood’s Chatswood office

McCabe Curwood, a large boutique firm known for both its strong commercial, and insurance and government practices, has opened a large ‘home-base’ outside of the Sydney CBD for fee earners, in a bold move to align with clients and build a more flexible and agile working environment.


“By moving to the Zenith Centre, an A-Grade building outside of the Sydney CBD, we can invest in the long-term vision of McCabe Curwood, we can build what we are calling the Future Workplace.” Said Andrew Lacey, Managing Principal at McCabe Curwood.

“With moving part of our operations out of the CBD, we can grow our footprint and create a better working environment.

“We are providing flexibility in where and how teams work. Employees are able to work from both office locations and are equipped with new laptops and plenty of data allowance, so they are not restricted to any one location.” Says Lacey.

Her Worship Mayor of Willoughby Councillor Gail Giles-Gidney officially opened the office located across two levels of the Zenith Centre. The building boasts an in-house childcare centre with priority placement to tenants, new end of trip facilities, a wellness program, and access to green space for BBQs and other large staff functions.

Mayor Gail has recently publicly stated her vision for Chatswood as a vibrant, diverse and accessible CBD with exceptional urban design.

McCabe Curwood chose the Chatswood location as the building facilities are on par with their MLC Centre offices on Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD, and also because of the convenience and opportunity Chatswood provides as a major transport and business hub.

“Chatswood opens up a gateway to the expanding North and North West of Sydney. We want our existing employees and our future employees to be able to take advantage of the Chatswood CBD and the new office, which provides for better working conditions; especially when they are not client facing or in court and don’t need to travel into the city.

“Having easier access to essential services like childcare will also help us attract high calibre candidates like working parents, who don’t want the long city hours and need to be back in time to pick up from school or day-care. Work takes up such a large part of our lives; we need to make sure it fits with our personal lives.” Says Lacey.
