Partner

Fiona is a straight talker and client-focused, but she is also highly compassionate and very approachable. She enjoys using her natural empathy and astute legal knowledge to find workable and just resolutions to extremely difficult and distressing situations.

Fiona has been with us since 1994 and brings a unique combination of skills to our Insurance practice area. Originally studying biology and physiology at university, Fiona began her legal career as a paralegal in our Commercial Disputes team helping with significant insolvency, professional liability and trade practices matters. After moving to our Insurance practice area, Fiona realised she could combine her interest in biology and physiology with her growing interest in practicing law.
