Jarryd Malouf


Jarryd Malouf’s keen and long-standing interest in advocacy and litigation led him directly to the Bar in 2012. Since that time, he has developed into an outstanding advocate. Jarryd’s practice is focussed on insurance and personal injury litigation, including in medical and professional negligence, public liability claims, life insurance and TPD claims, workers compensation and motor vehicle accidents.

He also has a strong interest in administrative law which is necessary as personal injury litigation evolves. Recently, Jarryd has become heavily involved in institutional abuse cases and deaths in custody claims representing family members. Jarryd also has experience in commercial, employment and general insurance litigation.

Jarryd is motivated, practical, and strategic, whilst being suitably aggressive in pursuing the best results for his clients – including plaintiffs and defendants. This has led to him successfully litigating several hundreds of claims in recent years. Jarryd always respects the input of both his solicitors and clients. He maintains a responsive working relationship and exercises unfailing diligence with regard to ensuring all parties are updated as a case evolves. He also makes time to answer queries and speak to clients whenever possible.

In addition to an extremely disciplined approach to detail, Jarryd’s ability to deliver outstanding advocacy is the cornerstone of his practice. A consummate professional, he has an immersive approach to preparation and remains ‘across the brief’ at all times. Through organisation and adept knowledge of the requirements of the court, he makes the legal process seamless.

Jarryd readily travels intrastate to work with rural practitioners and is keenly aware of the requirements of rural communities.

Jarryd appears unled and led in all jurisdictions.
