The Legal Services Commission obtained an injunction against Karli Helen McLachlan in 2021, prohibiting her from seeking to be – or being – employed by a law practice or being associated with a law practice.
Queensland Law Society has been informed that Ms McLachlan might again be seeking to work in law practices. QLS has also been informed that Ms McLachlan might be using another name, “Gallan”.
A law practice must obtain approval from the Society to employ a person if the practice knows the person has been found guilty of a serious offence.
Practitioners are encouraged to ensure they conduct due diligence on prospective employees and seek approval from Queensland Law Society as necessary.
