Kaliopi Hourdas was born and raised in Darwin and has always called Darwin home.
She graduated from Charles Darwin University in 2009 and has practised as a lawyer here since. She rose through the ranks quickly in her previous firm, working as a partner from 2017.
Kaliopi joined the Halfpennys team in November 2021.
‘I’m proud to be part of Halfpennys, and I very much look forward to assisting Halfpennys’ clients,’ she said.
Kaliopi is a different type of lawyer.
You won’t find her promising results she can’t deliver. And she’s careful in her practice to keep the ‘bigger picture’ in mind. No ego, practical and strategic advice, and focussed on getting you the best possible outcome. That’s why clients choose Kaliopi.
Kaliopi has extensive experience in:
- workers’ compensation
- employment law
- regulatory compliance
- commercial disputes
- professional negligence
- liquor licensing
- understanding and applying Chief Health Officer (CHO) directions.
She can also help clients with wills and commercial matters.
‘I love the intellectual stimulation of being a lawyer and getting clients from A to B, making sure they make fully informed decisions,’ she said.
‘If I don’t keep the real-life realities in mind when advising my clients, I’m doing them a disservice. This is always my focus in my work.’
Outside of work, Kaliopi enjoys being with her close-knit family and enjoying what the Darwin community has to offer.
