Rosemary Listing is proud to practise law in the position of Special Counsel at Catherine Henry Lawyers. She specialises in medical negligence litigation and is dedicated to advocating on behalf of the firm’s clients in their interaction with the health care system building her practice on the values of transparency, equality and accountability.
Rosemary completed her legal education at the University of Sydney. She then moved to London where she worked as a research assistant to Norman Palmer QC whose practice was a broad common law practice. Upon her return to Australia she again worked as a research associate – this time for Justice Sackar of the NSW Supreme Court.
Rosemary then relocated to Canberra where she worked for a number of years at the ACT’s largest plaintiff personal injury firm – here she assisted everyday Australians whose lives had been devastated by injury. Rosemary has also worked in class actions and in employment law, consumer protection and insurance claims.
Rosemary’s most recent role was Director of a plaintiff law firm, Rise Lawyers where she advocated for large numbers of women who suffered injury from failed cosmetic surgery. At Catherine Henry Lawyers, she has the conduct of a large number of cosmetic surgery matters in addition to failed medical devices and general medical negligence litigation.

My legal practice is built around the goals of transparency, equality and accountability. I believe that regulation, including regulation by litigation, is a crucial component of an effective healthcare system. I hope for my legal practice to increase the protection of consumers, deter unreasonable behaviour, and to offer answers where they are most needed.
