Maddocks appoints administrative law and litigation lawyer to Canberra office

Wednesday 5 February

Maddocks has appointed Kim Robbins to join its Public Law team in Canberra.

Kim specialises in advising on administrative law matters, statutory interpretation and dispute resolution and litigation. She also advises on implementation of policy, including drafting legislative schemes.

Kim, who began with Maddocks this week,  joins as a consultant and has extensive experience working in Commonwealth agencies as well as in private practice. Before joining Maddocks, Kim was Branch Manager of the National Disability Insurance Agency’s AAT Legal Branch. She also previously led the Litigation Support Unit at the Commonwealth Department of Health, and is a former partner of DLA Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper).

Head of the Maddocks Public Law team, Canberra partner Caroline Atkins, said Kim would add further Commonwealth Government experience to the firm’s national public law team, particularly in administrative law and public law litigation.

‘Administrative law and litigation are a key focus of the public law practice for Maddocks, and we work with the Commonwealth on administrative law and public litigation matters across all of our offices,’ Caroline said.

‘Kim brings a great deal of insight into the way Commonwealth departments and agencies approach administrative law issues and public law litigation and will be an exceptional addition to our public law offering.’

Kim’s appointment comes soon after the firm appointed special counsel Veena Bedekar to join the Probity team in Canberra.
