Tracy Riddle - Lawyer

Tracy’s unparalleled knowledge of the public integrity system sets her apart from others.

Profile

After completing a degree in social work, it became evident to Tracy that she was more suited to alternative endeavours (a fact well known to those around her) so she promptly joined SAPOL.

She commenced her legal career as a police officer and enjoyed four years as a police prosecutor, before moving to the Crown Solicitors Office, prosecuting for Government Departments. Tracy was appointed as Counsel Assisting the Investigator in the City of Burnside Inquiry, prior to being engaged as the Senior Lawyer on the SACAT, and then the Public Integrity Implementation Teams.

Tracy’s practice area spans advice, investigative work and report writing for HR, WHS, Code of Conduct and integrity matters. Her attention to detail makes her ideal for detailed bodies of work such as section 270 reviews, legislative audits and policy and procedure documents.

Tracy’s approachable, down to earth manner makes her an asset in difficult or sensitive employment discussions.

As a leader in her field, Tracy is regularly requested to present at workshops, conferences and seminars, and widely publishes in her fields of expertise. Her experience has been recognised by her peers, with her second consecutive year listing in Best Lawyers Australia in the field of governance law.

With any free time left over from running around to various sporting and social commitments for her three kids, Tracy regularly enjoys supporting the excellent wineries and restaurants in her local Adelaide Hills region.
