Heidi Nash-Smith

Partner, Wotton + Kearney

Heidi leads Wotton + Kearney’s pro bono and responsible business program, Community Footprint, and is a passionate advocate of community advocacy. She is recognised as a leader in her field, having won Pro Bono Partner of the Year at the 2018 and 2019 Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year Awards.

Formerly an insurance lawyer, Heidi made a conscious decision to cease practicing in insurance to follow her passion to help individuals and organisations that struggle with real-life issues and challenges. She has now built a rapidly growing pro bono and community program which has become a valued asset of the culture at Wotton + Kearney.  She has established partnerships with advocacy organisations, including Human Rights Law Centre, Public Interest Advocacy Centre and Justice Connect, to create opportunities for our lawyers to assist vulnerable members of our community.
