Roop is an experienced litigation lawyer, who practices in professional negligence claims, employment disputes, class actions and general litigation.

Roop has handled a number of complex class actions and is currently running the Fairbridge Farm class action on behalf of former child migrants.

He also worked on the shareholder class action against listed mining company OZ Minerals, and the fuel surcharge class action conducted against several international airlines on behalf of Australian travel agents.

Prior to working in commercial and project litigation, Roop spent more than five years representing clients in Slater and Gordon’s asbestos law team.

Client Testimonials

"Roop, what I am trying to express, is the kindness and dedication you have to both your clients (my Mum and Dad) and your vocation as a lawyer. I can’t thank you enough for your consideration and effort you put into Dad’s case. The manner in which you presented yourself to my parents and the ongoing contact with them was nothing short of exceptional.

I can honestly say the manner in which you and your company have acted on behalf of our family was tremendous. The final outcome was beyond all expectations. Again, although it will not help Dad, the thought knowing that Mum will be secure, has placed his mind at ease and has given him one less worry."  - Name withheld
