Rossana Parmegiani Special Counsel, Sparke Helmore Lawyers
Rossana regularly advises and represents the public and private sector on work health and safety (WHS) issues, compliance and WorkCover prosecutions. Having worked as the principal lawyer in the prosecutions branch of WorkCover NSW, Rossana understands what this regulator is striving to achieve and how to engage with it. Rossana's experience as a senior WHS adviser, combined with the insights gained as a WorkCover NSW prosecutor, gives her a unique insight into the regulatory and prosecutions process. This deep knowledge of the processes helps her guide clients facing difficult situations, such as safety incidents, alleged breaches and prosecutions, to make appropriate decisions. Rossana also uses her skills as a litigator to help individuals required to give evidence in public and private inquiries before the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).
