New CEO appointed at Law Society NT

New CEO appointed at Law Society NT

Kellie Grainger

Law Society Northern Territory has named its new chief executive.

Kellie Grainger (pictured) has been officially appointed to the role after serving as acting CEO since June 2016. She has also served as manager of regulatory services since joining the Society in 2012.

Prior to this, Ms Grainger worked in private practice in Hervey Bay, Queensland. She was admitted to the Supreme Court of Queensland in 1996.

“I am delighted and proud to take up the position of CEO with the Society,” Ms Grainger said.

“The Society fulfils a number of important roles, as an advocate for the administration of justice and as the supervisory body and regulator for the legal profession in the Northern Territory.”

Law Society president Tass Liveris welcomed Ms Grainger to the role. “Ms Grainger brings exemplary legal and personal skills to the role of CEO. She has an established reputation within the Northern Territory legal profession, as well as the Society’s local and national stakeholders,” he said.

“She has shown herself to be a tremendous leader of the Society’s staff, and she has the confidence of the council to manage the day-to-day affairs of the Society’s very important work. I congratulate Ms Grainger on her appointment and wish her ongoing success as the CEO.”
