Emma Macfarlane

Emma is a Partner in our Dispute Resolution team and is responsible for managing the Dispute Resolution Department in our Campbelltown office. Emma has been with Marsdens since 2004 and in recognition of her ability to obtain successful results for the firm’s clients, she was appointed as Partner in July 2014.

Emma’s practice focuses primarily on commercial dispute resolution and litigation, competition and consumer law and corporate and personal insolvency. Within her commercial dispute resolution and litigation experience, Emma’s practice encompasses Contract law, partnership disputes, property disputes, professional negligence and equity. She has been involved in conducting litigation in the Federal, Supreme, District and Local Courts as well as State and Interstate Tribunals.

Emma is cognisant of her clients' commercial and strategic objectives and conducts cases in a manner designed to efficiently and effectively achieve those objectives. Whilst this often involves litigation where appropriate, Emma also assists clients to resolve disputes though alternative dispute resolution avenues.

Emma has strong community ties and is committed to supporting local community organisations.  Since 2007, Emma has been a Director of Youth Solutions, a Macarthur based charitable organisation whose vision is to support young people to make safer life choices and achieve their full potential by preventing harmful drug use. Emma has an ongoing involvement in raising funds for the Ingham Institute, a not-for-profit medical research organisation for Sydney’s South West that undertakes medical research that specifically addresses and can be applied to the needs of the local population and wider Australia. In 2015, Emma was also appointed to the Board of St Patrick's College.

In addition to her legal qualifications, Emma also holds a degree in Business (Management).
