She works on complex disputes involving major projects and infrastructure and across sectors that include energy and resources, building and construction, real property, agribusiness, trade practices and competition, professional negligence, intellectual property, state taxes, land access and native title. Osborn works regularly with Australia’s pre-eminent senior counsel and has appeared in the High Court of Australia, the Federal Court of Australia, the Supreme Court of Western Australia, and the State Administrative Tribunal, as well as ICC, SIAC, and UNCITRAL international commercial arbitrations.

“This team of talented lawyers adds tremendous depth to our disputes team in Perth for representing both local and international clients in some of the most important commercial disputes in Australia and the Asia Pacific region,” said Adam Salter, partner-in-charge of the firm’s Perth office. “The arrival of these four individuals will help us provide even better service to clients and I am delighted to welcome them to the Perth office of Jones Day.”
