Senior Lawyer/LLB BCom
Jane Blackburn is a Senior Lawyer and part of Maddens Lawyers Commercial Litigation team, having worked with the firm since 2010.
Jane was born and raised in Central NSW and spent the latter part of her secondary schooling in Sydney.
She graduated from the University of New England in 2005 with a combined Law and Commerce Degree before moving to Victoria.
Jane began her legal career in 2006 with Melbourne firm Hunt and Hunt.
It was a western district farmer who, in 2010, helped lure Jane from her city base to Maddens Lawyers. Jane’s areas of expertise include bankruptcy and insolvency, debt recovery and business disputes. She has a particular flair – and extensive knowledge – when it comes to employment law, acting for employers in disputes and negotiations.
Outside the office, Jane is now married to the farmer who drew her out of the city, helping to run their broad acre property near Lake Bolac.
She is also a director of the Willaura Lake Bolac Community Bank.
