Jacquie has practised employment, discrimination law and education law since 1990. Her sports law practice has grown naturally from these other areas since 2006.
She works in both the public and private sectors, and her expertise spans a wide range of industries including education, sport, health and aged care, community services, financial services, IT, retail, manufacturing, transport and agribusiness.
Jacquie's education sector clients cover the education lifecycle: preschools, schools, universities and other post-secondary education providers. She advises these clients not only on employment-related issues but also on the broadest range of education law issues.
Her sports law clients include sports clubs and their owners, representative sports associations, employer associations, and disability services organisations.
An experienced litigator in employment and industrial relations, Jacquie has specialist expertise in discrimination, unfair dismissal and breach of contract claims; industrial disputes; and prosecutions for breach of awards, industrial laws and workplace safety laws. She is a tough negotiator, and looks for commercial and non-litigious solutions where possible.
Jacquie is also a leading practitioner in discrimination law, and an industry leader in designing and presenting tailored compliance training programs for employers on all employment-related topics.
