Lisa Fitzgerald (pictured) has joined Norton Rose Fulbright, having come across from Landers, where she served for over four years.

She has also worked at Allens, Gilbert + Tobin, Baker McKenzie, and Pinsent Masons in in-house roles and was an associate to former justice of the High Court of Australia, the Honourable Kenneth Hayne AC, KC.

Fitzgerald is, NRF said in a statement, “highly experienced” in cross-border transactions, regularly advising clients expanding into domestic and international markets, and she assists global and domestic clients in navigating Australia’s complex regulatory landscape, from privacy and data protection to competition and consumer law, therapeutic goods, prudential standards, telecommunications, and security of critical infrastructure regimes.


She is qualified to practice law in both Australia and the UK.

The news follows NRF’s elevation of three women to its partnership in late January, as well as its hiring of another two partners earlier this year.

Speaking about the appointment, NRF Australian chief executive partner Alison Deitz said: “The rapid pace of technological change, including the digital transformation of industries, the growth of AI and increased cyber risks, is impacting all clients and placing increasing demands on our firm to provide seamless domestic and cross-border advice.

“The addition of a highly accomplished international practitioner in Lisa Fitzgerald will provide a significant boost to our technology, financial institutions, telco and health and pharmaceuticals clients.”

Fitzgerald added: “Digital transformation provides clients with the opportunity to reshape their organisation to improve the way they operate, delivering enhanced customer experiences while reducing costs and enabling a secure, hybrid workforce.

“The global nature of customers and technology suppliers requires a global mindset to manage risks and capture the benefits that underpin successful transformation programs.

“Norton Rose Fulbright’s international technology, cyber, data and privacy practices provide the ideal platform for clients navigating digitalisation and global markets. I look forward to bringing clients a unique blend of leading experience and international insights to help them excel in Australia and around the world.”
