Tomaso Di Lallo has an extensive commercial practice in large and complex litigation

He is experienced in interlocutory, trial and appellate advocacy, primarily in the Supreme Court of Victoria and the Federal Court of Australia.  Tomaso’s principal areas of practice are in insolvency, banking, contract, corporations, equity, property, restitution and trade practices. 

Because of his accounting background, Tomaso has particular proficiency in accounting and financial matters.  As a result, he has been retained in many proceedings in which familiarity with accounting documents is essential, and has extensive experience in working with expert witnesses in such matters. 

Tomaso has experience in class action litigation, with a particular focus on securities class actions.  In this dynamic and constantly evolving area of law, he has been retained by major national and international law firms, from the earliest stages, in organising establishing and conducting securities class actions against publicly listed companies. 

Tomaso was employed at Arthur Robinson & Hedderwicks (now, Allens).  Subsequently, he was Associate to the Honourable Sir Reginald Smithers of the Federal Court of Australia, and thereafter was employed at Madden Butler Elder & Graham (now, Norton Rose Fulbright). 

Tomaso holds a Bachelor of Laws with Honours and a Bachelor of Economics with Honours, majoring in accounting, from Monash University.
