About Jacqueline

Upon joining Ligeti Partners in 2010, Jacqueline has practised predominantly in the area of insurance litigation and, more specifically, motor vehicle insurance. She has advised and acted in all aspects of motor vehicle recovery and defence, including unusual circumstances involving livestock, water damaged vehicles, actions pursuant to the Insurance Contracts Act (Cth) 1984, recovery agent actions and credit hire car.

Jacqueline practises primarily in the Victorian, South Australian and Western Australian Courts and Tribunals, and has appeared on behalf of insurer clients at mediations, pre-hearing conferences, taxations of costs, applications and as Counsel at Trial in the Perth Magistrates Court. In 2015 she was responsible for opening and managing our Perth office for two years, where she gained local knowledge and significant experience regularly appearing on behalf of her clients at Court. Jacqueline has now returned to our Melbourne office and manages a team of lawyers and paralegals. Currently her work involves claims in negligence, contract, the Australian Consumer Law and assessment of damages. She enjoys the fast paced nature of insurance litigation and excels at providing accurate, timely and practical advice and results which are specifically tailored to her clients’ requirements.
