Special Counsel

As a plaintiff class action lawyer, Jack Gracie is keen to ensure that all individuals are afforded access to justice.

Jack’s experience has shown him that strong advocacy is required if the legal system is to work for everyone – not just for those who can afford it. Class actions are an essential mechanism through which individuals who suffer damage can seek justice and recover compensation.

Jack has worked on shareholder class actions against some of the largest listed companies and auditors in Australia, and has developed a specialisation in proceedings brought against and in relation to listed construction companies. He has also acted in complex competition and employment class actions at trial, including against Apple, Google and Domino’s.

More broadly, Jack has managed individual claims against banks and financial advisers arising from negligent and inappropriate financial advice.

At Phi Finney McDonald, Jack investigates new class actions, assists in the efficient conduct of ongoing matters, and vigorously pursues social and economic justice for his clients.
