Kathleen is a Partner and Pro Bono Director in our pro bono team, working across all areas of the firm in servicing the firm’s pro bono commitment. She undertakes pro bono matters and advises on pro bono work being conducted across Gadens, including in the areas of domestic violence, the environment, the arts, financial literacy and humanitarian visas.

Kathleen’s pro bono assignments have allowed her to draw on her expertise in areas including:

  • trustee duties
  • governance for registered charities
  • corporate law
  • fund raising
  • migration law

In her pro bono practice and more broadly, Kathleen’s clients have included registered charities, entities operating overseas looking to establish a presence in Australia, visa applicants, statutory bodies, large institutional clients and social enterprises.

Kathleen has been engaged as a specialist in the areas of trusts and compliance, has provided expert opinion in superannuation and migration law, and is frequently called upon to present to specialist client groups and in broader public forums.  Kathleen is an ‘activist’ for a strong, constant and result driven connection between the professional services sector and the provision of legal services on a pro bono basis.
