The 5th annual CASE Awards celebrate those making outstanding, positive contributions in the workers' compensation industry across NSW.

Alexandra Galassi, Senior Injury Management Specialist in the Workers' Compensation team was named as Young Professional of the Year in the Care and Service category.
