Alanna is passionate about shaping strong client outcomes to organisational, policy and regulatory issues by providing great legal advice and sharp legal strategy in complex, information-rich, fast-moving environments. With a strong understanding of the client perspective, she has led the legal representation of the State and its departments and agencies in many significant legal matters.

In appointing Alanna, Maddocks CEO David Newman commented: “Alanna’s appointment is a testament to the continued strength of Maddocks’ Government Practice. To attract a partner of Alanna’s calibre will only add to the strength of our practice and the continued strong relationship we have with the Victorian State Government. We are excited by Alanna’s future at Maddocks for many years to come.”
