Eleanor commenced her legal career in the Slater and Gordon Class Actions team in 2017 as a Paralegal working on the Manus Island Class Action, which is considered the largest human rights settlement in Australian history. Her role involved engaging with clients so that they could receive their individual compensation payments.
As a lawyer, Eleanor works on large-scale common law class actions, including claims regarding pharmaceutical products and bushfire litigation. Eleanor also works on pro bono matters and investigates prospective group proceedings, including against large corporations and public authorities, involving claims such as negligence, mass torts, and breaches of consumer law.
Eleanor is passionate about class action litigation as a mechanism that holds entities to account for wrongdoing, allows people to use their collective strength to access the justice system, and shines a spotlight on misconduct in a way that pushes for accountability and change.
