She practises in both bankruptcy and corporate insolvency.

Alison’s insolvency law practice is complemented by a general commercial practice in which she is regularly briefed to draw pleadings and provide advice in relation to a variety of contractual and property disputes.

Before coming to the Bar in 2009, Alison was a principal of a mid tier Melbourne law firm, where she practised exclusively in commercial litigation. Her 15 years of experience as a solicitor means that Alison understands the demands on instructors to provide accurate and practical advice to their clients, and to provide cost effective outcomes.

Since 2004, Alison has been a member of the LIV Commercial Litigation Advisory Committee which assists the Specialisation Board of the Law Institute of Victoria.

She has presented at numerous conferences held by the Law Institute of Victoria on topics related to both insolvency and general commercial litigation.

Alison is a member of the Commercial Bar Association of Victoria, the Law Institute of Victoria and IWIRC (Victoria) (International Womens Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation).

Alison has also served on boards of not for profit organisations, including St Laurence Community Services and the Geelong Community Legal Service.
