Abbey is a Lawyer in the Corporate Advisory team at Moores.
Abbey focuses on child safety, discrimination and workplace relations. She strives to provide a calm, empathetic and strategic approach to client problems, ensuring that the client’s needs remain central to any solution.
As part of the Child Safety team, Abbey advises organisations on preventing and responding to child safety concerns. This includes developing policies and procedures to keep children safe in line with current best practice, and advising on legal obligations across all States and Territories as well as responding to child safety incidents and other compliance related activities.
Abbey also provides workplace relations and discrimination advice, and representation to clients when a dispute arises. Abbey is committed to providing clients with the tools they need to be leaders in creating safe, equitable and inclusive environments for members of their communities.
Abbey also delivers seminars and workshops to schools, students and other organisations on complex legal and social issues, with a particular interest in the promotion of disability rights within organisations.
Abbey’s experience in government and her background in human rights enables her to bring a clear and considered understanding of regulatory frameworks, and a holistic understanding of the issues that clients encounter. Abbey ensures that human rights remain the cornerstone of her approach to any legal issue, based on the beneficial outcomes this provides for all parties.
"I am committed to doing values-driven work that allows me to provide high-quality outcomes for organisations doing positive work in our community. It’s such a privilege to work at an organisation that shares my vision for a fairer, more equitable society."
Outside of work, Abbey enjoys yoga, the beach and the odd systemic advocacy project.
