"Dominique Hogan-Doran SC epitomises the ideal, modern-day Senior Counsel. She is agile, technologically savvy, has a great rapport with clients which she combines with her vast technical skills, experience and strategic advocacy. In a recent high profile Commission of Inquiry in which we instructed Dominique, she was able to work quickly, within a very short timeframe and under a great deal of pressure, to help produce a stellar outcome for our client."

– Partner, Clayton Utz Lawyers

"We have briefed Dominique on a number of occasions regarding more complex corporate, liability and superannuation issues. Dominique’s approach to problem solving and advising is to efficiently gather context and focus on key issues and outcomes, with an eye out for collateral issues and down the track consequences. Dominique’s advice is pithy, to the point and highly accessible for non-legal audiences. This is why Dominique is our 'go-to' for advice on challenging matters."

“I first met Dominique when she was Counsel Assisting in a large Commission of Inquiry in which I was involved. I found Dominique then to be an impressive counsel, very knowledgeable about the law, and a skilled advocate. 

Later, when I required an advice and assistance at a mediation, I engaged Dominique and was again equally impressed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dominique for any matter.” 

– Owner, International e-technology firm

"I had the great pleasure of working with Dominique as her client throughout 2012/13, as the Head of the CFD client group and as a member of the COI in the matter of the Liquidation of MF Global Australia by Deloitte. Dominique was literally astounding in her lightning assimilation of both the complex financial instruments involved & the implications for the various competing client groups. Her early involvement dedication & skill was without doubt instrumental in the successful return of over 90% of client funds!"
