Ms Lowry specialises in workers’ compensation, administrative law, insurance, and motor vehicle accidents. She conducts all aspects of catastrophic claims involving serious injuries, as well as complex medical, quantum and intricate liability issues. 

She is a multi-jurisdictional practitioner and has experience servicing both Northern Territory and South Australian markets. She has acted for compensation insurers, the Northern Territory and Commonwealth governments, local councils, and compulsory third-party insurers.


Ms Lowry has in-depth experience in all aspects of worker’s compensation and motor vehicle accidents, including specialist experience with indemnity, contribution, liability and both seeking and defending recovery claims between multiple parties.

She holds experience in migration and employment matters and has in-depth understanding of the challenges presented by the integration of worker’s compensation with visa and HR/IR issues.

James Johnson, the national practice group leader for insurance statutory lines, commented: “We are extremely pleased that Arelene has decided to join Sparke Helmore. She is an exceptional lawyer and will add further depth of expertise to our national team and our leading workers’ compensation business in the Northern Territory.”

Ms Lowry commented: “With Sparke Helmore’s exceptional reputation in the area of workers’ compensation and a culture that aligns so well to how I like to do business, it was an easy decision for me to make the move to Sparke Helmore.

“I’m excited to be part of such a talented team and contribute to its growth and success.”
