Staff spotlight: Jillian Hall

We are proud to introduce to you Jillian Hall, Principal at Rae & Partners, and an integral part of our Management Team for the Devonport office. With a wealth of experience in commercial law and a deep-rooted connection to the community, Jillian brings a unique blend of expertise and local insight to her practice.

Jillian’s journey

Jillian's journey into law wasn't conventional. Unlike many in the field, she didn't have a predefined path towards studying law. It wasn't until she embarked on her legal career that she discovered her passion for commercial law. Armed with a combined Commerce/Law degree and a Business degree with postgraduate First-Class Honours in Accounting and Corporate Governance, Jillian found herself naturally inclined towards the complexities of commercial law.

Throughout her studies and career, Jillian's interest in commercial law grew. Her favourite aspect of her work lies in problem-solving, particularly navigating through complex legal issues to find innovative solutions for her clients. Whether it's structuring transactions for tax-effectiveness, providing comprehensive advice on real property matters, or delving into estate planning and business succession planning, Jillian thrives on the challenges that commercial law presents.
