Julia Adlem

Managing Associate Lawyer

Julia Adlem joined our team at Pace Lawyers in September 2006 and is now the Managing Associate and file principal for all matters undertaken by our sister firm, Adelaide Legal. She read law at Anglia Ruskin University in the United Kingdom, where she graduated with Honours and as dux of her university cohort. Julia has an extensive background in employment law and industrial relations, business solutions, personal injury, wills and estates and family law. Her industrial relations experience extends to both employee and employer representation, providing a comprehensive insight into the complexities of legal changes and implications in this jurisdiction.

Julia was a senior member of the legal team involved in a recent ground-breaking decision of the High Court of Australia, regarding trust and confidence in all Australian employment contracts. She is also passionate about personal law remedies for injured and aggrieved persons, bringing her wealth of experience and understanding to bear in each and every matter she undertakes.

Prior to entering the legal profession, Julia worked in HR, advertising and media and her extensive management background in these industries gives her a negotiating edge and the drive to expect more. Julia doesn’t shy away from the hard fights, but she also has the common sense to appreciate when settlement is sensible and guide you through the mine field of the dispute resolution process. She has the ability to empathise whatever the circumstances, having the age and experience that is vital to successfully mediate at all levels.

Julia is mum to two daughters and wife to David, so has no ‘free time’, sadly she still finds enough energy to karaoke in the office, preferring the 80’s classics from her heyday.
