Maria Billias
I have specialised in workers compensation law for more than two decades. My main area of focus is preparing matters for hearing and determination by the South Australian Employment Tribunal. This involves liaising closely with MinterEllison team members, as well as ReturnToWorkSA personnel, agents, worker representatives and counsel.

I also advise the Crown and various self-insured employers on their strategy for handling workers compensation claims, and represent them in disputes.

Before joining MinterEllison, I acted for injured workers, as well as self-insured and self-managed employers. This gave me invaluable experience understanding the different perspectives of all the key parties involved in this challenging field.  

Career highlights:

  • Instructed on numerous high-profile workers compensation cases, including Yaghoubi & Campbell, Davey and Martin for Return to Work SA
  • Advised on workers compensation matters regarding the Return to Work Act 2014 (SA) including proceedings in the Full Court of the Supreme Court of South Australia
  • Mapped all possible outcomes and processes in a dispute for MinterEllison’s claims management system, and created precedent letters and documents for the system
