WELCOME TO GORDON & JACKSON - the most trusted Barristers & Mediators in Melbourne

Anna Svenson became the Director and Principal Clerk of Gordon and Jackson in November 2016, following on from Ross Gordon who was the previous Director for nearly 20 years.

Anna is excited to lead the Gordon and Jackson team into the next chapter of List S Barristers.

Anna comes to this role having worked as a solicitor in Personal Injury Civil Litigation for many years.  Anna brings with her appointment a strong appreciation of the needs of clients and the wider legal community in engaging with Barristers.  Anna has an energetic and dynamic approach which will be of great benefit to all who engage with the List.

In her spare time Anna enjoys visiting family in country Victoria.


Gordon & Jackson’s list has been trusted and respected by legal firms and clients throughout Australia for over 50 years.

With 13 QC’s & SC’s included in our 160 barristers, our list is big enough to have depth in all areas of law, jurisdictions and all levels of counsel but small enough to provide personal service and attention. We have counsel for you and your clients for every legal problem.

We have great strengths in commercial law, wills & estates, family law, crime and ADR (mediation and international arbitration).

Our experienced clerks, Anna Svenson, Michael Rowan, Susan Wilkes and Olimpia St George, are friendly and approachable. We know all our barristers and their practices and will recommend to you the counsel best suited to your needs.

To assist your practice as a solicitor we provide regular CPD seminars across a range of practice areas. Click here to subscribe and be added to our mailing list.

You may also freely access our extensive online library.

We welcome new applications to join the List. New list members are encouraged and supported by our experienced staff and list members. They are given mentoring and have a range of opportunities available to them. Excellent list events are provided by our four practice groups - Commercial & Civil, Insolvency, Family and Criminal law.

Our list is collegiate and goes out of its way to welcome new members. To enquire about joining our list, please contact our Principal Clerk, Anna Svenson.
