Caroline Teo

Caroline has a particular interest and experience in complex financial matters, third party representation, trusts and inter-jurisdictional disputes in the Family Court.

Caroline joins us as a Senior Associate. Commencing her career in 2004 as a Trusts, Estate and Succession Planning lawyer, Caroline made the transition into Family Law utilising her Trust and Estate Planning foundations. Caroline has since developed her Family Law practice to extend to all aspects of family law including property and financial matters, spousal maintenance and de facto relationships but with a focus on property and financial matters particularly those matters involving complex trusts and corporate structures, issues of legal and commercial complexity, third party representation in the Family Court and inter-jurisdictional disputes.

Caroline is passionate about achieving the best possible outcomes for her clients and enjoys working collaboratively with other professionals. She strongly believes in resolving disputes promptly and commercially with the use of alternative dispute resolution where practicable.

Where disputes have to be litigated, Caroline has worked with many of the leading Barristers in Western Australia including Appeals to the Full Court.

Caroline is currently a Council Member of the Family Law Practitioners’ Association (WA), a member of the Law Society of Western Australia, Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and Women Lawyers of Western Australia and an affiliate member of the Tax Institute of Australia.
