Ms Barrett, who was previously a partner at Bartier Perry, has experience in corporate and commercial law, including in commercial contracts, intellectual property, corporate compliance and governance, and mergers and acquisitions.
She has worked with a wide variety of clients, from entrepreneurs through to ASX-listed companies.
Hall & Wilcox managing partner Tony Macvean said Ms Barrett’s ability to work across general commercial law along with corporate advisory and transactional work is a strength.
“Jacqui's skills are a fantastic complement to Danny Herceg’s transactional practice in our Sydney office,” Mr Macvean said.
“Jacqui is a great fit with the firm’s smarter law focus. She displays qualities that we value, with a strong emphasis on premium client experience, and we welcome her aboard.”
