Jess joined Holland Beckett in August 2016 and is employed in the Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team with Mark Beech.
Prior to joining Holland Beckett, Jess worked for six years as a Solicitor in Melbourne where she represented WorkSafe Victoria, insurers and employers in litigation relating to negligence claims, statutory and contractual interpretation, insurance coverage and general liability issues.
Jess has represented her clients in conferences, conciliations and Court proceedings in the Magistrates’, County and Supreme Courts of Victoria. She has extensive experience in all aspects of trial preparation.
Jess also has experience working with Australia’s Occupational Health and Safety Laws and has a particular interest in working with employers to improve risk management practices and to limit potential liability.
Having only recently relocated from Australia to New Zealand, Jess is looking forward to exploring all that New Zealand and, more specifically, The Bay has to offer.
