- Judge's associate, Lawyer, Legal academic, Partner and Solicitor
After working at ANU law school, as an associate to a High Court judge and a brief stint with Michael Kirby at the Australian Law Reform Commission, Rebecca Davies joined Freehills as an articled clerk, with Kim Santow as her master solicitor.
Just under three years after her admission she became the third female partner at a major Australian law firm.
Davies practised as a litigator and a commercial lawyer working in both the Sydney and Melbourne offices of the firm, managing a range of high profile cases and projects.
She was a member of the firm's board and chair of the Women at Freehills steering committee.
