NSW solicitor and author

Challenge drives creativity and innovative thinking to bring change

Anne Duggan credits her current career path to two jobs she worked as a student – one at an investment bank and the other at a small city practice specialising in criminal and civil matters. The NSW-based solicitor recorded a long stint as a construction and property lawyer, and had the opportunity to tackle big projects before making the transition to corporate.

Today, Duggan has several senior leadership roles under her belt, and has become a strong advocate for professionals to perform at their peak – a focus that has led to her penning a book on the topic.

In this interview, Duggan talks the importance of creating space, building a legal profession that can withstand AI disruption, and how she’d defend The Smurfs’ Gargamel.
