By Reporter|04 March 2014

“Barristers are often briefed just for the trial and so I am looking forward to assisting clients throughout the course of their case,” she said.

“I am also very much looking forward to working with a team of lawyers, and the opportunity to help develop junior lawyers. I realised that I would be able to have this type of experience more often if I returned to private practice than if I remained at the Bar.”

At the Bar, Knoester was involved in a number of high-profile personal injury cases and settlements. She also acted in landmark cases involving compensation paid to victims of sexual abuse and recovering the costs of care for severely brain injured workers.

During this period, Knoester was regularly briefed by the head of ALIL Andrea Tsalamandris.

She also held the role of Honorary Secretary of the Victorian Bar Council and a member of the Ethics Committee and Readers Course Committee from 2011 to 2012.

Knoester is married with a baby daughter Amalia and has two miniature schnauzers.
