Portrait of Natalie Hickey

Natalie Hickey

Natalie is a barrister with a keen interest in media related and sports law matters.

Natalie has her own legal website called The Social Litigator. Her aim is to demystify the law, particularly in relation to sporting issues that have captured the public eye, such as the long running Essendon Football Club and ASADA saga.

A former partner of King & Wood Mallesons, Natalie has represented clients in all kinds of disputes, including in the sporting context. She has learnt that what is invisible to the human eye can be of greatest value to its owner (privacy, freedom, reputation and goodwill). 

Natalie has been recognised as a leading lawyer in such publications as Best Lawyers Australia 2010–2013, Chambers Asia-Pacific 2012–2014 and The World Trademark Review 1000 2013–2014.
