Mia is a lawyer at Stacks Law Firm, working across all areas of law, particularly insolvency matters. She has experience advising and acting for large corporations and appreciates the need to provide solutions that are legally, commercially and financially viable.
Her skills include an ability to comprehend difficult legal concepts quickly and to manage complex claims involving legal issues across a number of fields of law.
After initially only studying law to complement her arts degree, Mia opted to pursue a career in law as she enjoyed the intellectual challenge and advocacy work involved. She likes collaborating with colleagues and clients to identify strategies for overcoming any barriers to a successful result for the client.
Mia has worked on a gaming law matter that involved a multi-national lottery conglomerate seeking certification from a government authority to acquire an interest in a gaming operation in Australia. As part of this matter, Mia traveled to Czechia and Greece to brief stakeholders and conduct interviews.
Mia has represented victims of historical sexual abuse in compensation claims against the state government and various religious orders.
Mia studied art history at university and has a strong interest in the intersection between art and law, which she pursues outside of work. She is also able to indulge her love of art by volunteering her time as a tour guide at the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre for community groups and visitors to the gallery.
Mia has written a number of articles, including publications on gaming law. In 2018, she contributed a chapter to a publication entitled Research Handbook on Islamic Law and Society. When not at work, Mia enjoys playing water polo, attending live sporting events and spending time at the beach with her golden retriever.
