About Rosemary Listing - Director and Founder

Hi there,

IMG_0797 (3).JPG

My name is Rosemary listing and I am the founding lawyer at Rise.

In my work at a local law firm in Canberra, I learned first hand of the thousands of Australians slipping through the cracks in the Australian medical, employment and financial systems.

So, in 2018 I took on more study to understand how I can be part of a solution. My research took me to America where I met with other lawyers and learned more about the large gaps in Australian law for everyday Australians, particularly women.

I founded Rise Lawyers to enforce the law for everyday Australians, and to protect and empower Australians to pursue their rights.

I believe:

  • Education is knowledge and empowerment, and

  • The law can be used for positive change, which means equality, transparency and accountability.
