Anne Sheehan is an advocate and a mediator. She accepts cases in a broad range of public law, common law and personal injury proceedings.
Anne’s public law practice includes all aspects of administrative law and public law—in providing advice, at first instance hearings and on appeal. She is equally effective as an advocate in inquisitorial hearings and adversarial hearings.
Anne acts in personal injury proceedings at common law and for statutory benefits for workplace and transport injuries. She appears in recovery proceedings pursuant to the Accident Compensation Act/ Workplace Injury and Rehabilitation and Compensation Act. Her knowledge of medico-legal issues is also utilised in superannuation matters.
In the Coroners Court, in both WA and Victoria, she has acted for families of deceased and service providers in deaths where mental health, OHS, and adherence to the principles of accident prevention have all been prominent issues.
Anne has practiced as a barrister since 1998, initially in Western Australia, until she returned to Victoria in 2001. Prior to the Bar she was a solicitor for 14 years: as a senior litigator for the Aboriginal Legal Service (WA) for 4 years on test case Native Title ligation, as a partner in Ludbrook, Harper and Sheehan Ballarat for 6 years, and as an employee solicitor at Ryan Carlisle Thomas, Dandenong and Melbourne for 4 years after she completed her articles there in 1982.
