Helen Symon QC is a leading advocate with wide experience in taxation law as well as commercial and administrative law.   She appears regularly in the High Court of Australia, the Federal Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of Victoria.
In recognition of her extensive litigation practice Helen was named in Best Lawyers 2015 and 2016 – Litigation.  Her style in written and oral advocacy has been, variously, described as elegant, sophisticated, subtle and accomplished.
Helen has had a long interest in the not-for-profit sector, in the difference good governance – getting the basics right – can make to an organisation in fulfilling its objectives.  Her primary interest, however, is in fund-raising and philanthropy.  She is passionate about the difference people can make with their money.  And about the role not-for-profits can play in people experiencing that difference – to the satisfaction and benefit of both.  From December 2013 – February 2016, Helen chaired the Victorian Bar’s Ethics Committee.
