Vrege (Reg) Kolokossian is the Managing Partner of Gerard Malouf & Partners Superannuation Lawyers and is an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law with over 30 years’ experience.
Reg is not only one of the most experienced lawyers in the Australian legal profession but also one of the nicest lawyers you will meet. But don’t let that fool you, he will always fight for you against the insurance companies where he first started his career having worked for the TAC in Melbourne and the GIO in Sydney for over 8 years. In fact this early experience helped Reg develop a sound understanding of how insurance companies operate and the tactics they employ. It is for this reason that his skills over the last 20 years have excelled in negotiating successful settlements for his clients in some of the most difficult cases in the profession. His experience and reputation amongst clients and lawyers alike has grown over the years to be a highly regarded compensation lawyer and advocate fighting for the rights of his clients.
Reg is now in a senior management position in our firm and along with handling cases for his clients he oversees and manages our team of superannuation lawyers headed by senior lawyer Tony Chow. All of our lawyers work solely against the insurance companies, unlike some firms who also work with them!
Reg is a member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance and he continues to lead the charge in advocating the rights of clients throughout Australia. He was instrumental in ensuring that Gerard Malouf & Partners set up regional offices throughout the East Coast of Australia so as to assist in servicing those individuals who did not previously have ready access to lawyers who would stand up for them against the insurance companies.
Reg grew up in Victoria as his parents moved to Melbourne when he was 4 years old. He grew up following AFL football and in particular his beloved Richmond and played both AFL and Basketball in his younger years and now continues to support both sports at the grass roots level.
Reg married a New South Wales girl and started a family that would grow to 5 wonderful kids. The timing was also right to move to Sydney and continue his career where he initially joined GIO and was in their motor vehicle injury claims for over 8 years.
Joining Gerard and the firm in 1996 when the firm was in its infancy, Reg & Gerard have worked hard for their clients ever since growing the firm into one of the most successful compensation firms in Australia with a team across the business of over 60 staff.
