Kerry Spies

Special Counsel

While studying accountancy at university, Kerry became fascinated with the law and how it shapes every facet of our lives. Kerry is meticulous and curious in how she approaches every aspect of her matters. The value she places on remaining organised and accountable drives her to reach the best possible outcomes for her clients.

Kerry’s expertise lies in commercial dispute resolution, including complex commercial and contractual disputes, insolvency litigation, large securities class actions, market misconduct, ASIC regulatory proceedings, Royal and State Commissions and Boards of Inquiry, and directors’ and officers’ professional indemnity and breaches of fiduciary duties.

Prior to joining Hamilton Locke, Kerry was a partner of Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr Inc, the Chief Legal Officer of SA College of Home Study Pty Ltd, and Special Counsel at Clyde & Co Australia.
