A personal injury lawyer with a true understanding of different cultures.
She has been with the firm for over a decade, but prior to joining, she has lived and worked in London, Kuala Lumpur, Chicago and Melbourne. Born in Malaysia, and with a family background from Kerala in Southern India, Anna has a strong understanding of both Malaysian and Indian culture.
Personal touch - based on care and respect
Anna has a reputation for taking the time to help her clients. She is passionate about guiding clients to get the proper treatment so that they can get the best out of their compensation schemes and, most importantly, the best out of the lives after the process is finished.
Working closely with our client care coordinators, Anna is very confident talking to other professionals (doctors, specialist, medico-legal professionals) to advocate on a client’s behalf. In fact, she has helped clients, when appropriate, with getting their family involved in rehabilitation to assist in quicker or easier recovery.
With a background in advising clients on superannuation and TPD matters, Anna ensures her clients know and understand all the possible compensation payments available to them.
Global experience, commercial perspective
Anna graduated from Kings College, London (one of the top 10 rated universities in the world) and then completed her Bar Finals as a member of Lincoln's Inn (one of the world's most prestigious professional bodies of judges and lawyers). She also practiced at the Malaysian Bar in Kuala Lumpur for 6 years at one of the top tier Malaysian firms, Skrine and Co.
She has a Masters of Business Administration from Melbourne Business School. She has worked in business roles in two very large commercial law firms as well as in a client services role for a recruitment business.
Anna was appointed as a Trustee of the LIV Law Aid Trust, a not-for-profit fund that helps people who have been injured to apply for funding assistance for disbursements. She is a member of the LIV medical negligence and public liability committees and of the Australian Lawyers Alliance.
Anna is fluent in English and Malay and can speak some Malayalam.
