For many years, Susan led large litigation cases and inquiries involving the production of large volumes of documents/data. This expertise enables Susan to deliver responsive and risk management solutions for effective information governance and regulatory compliance, particularly in data privacy, cross border data protection and critical incident planning and response.
Maureen Duffy joined Sibenco in 2017 and is admitted as solicitor in both Australia and the United States. Previously she worked at Herbert Smith Freehills for over 10 years, and her latest position was Deputy Head of Disputes for Asia & Australia in the Alternative Legal Services Group.
