Jane Kupsch is a Partner in the National Commercial Litigation team of Piper Alderman.

She is one of a small number of lawyers who are accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) as commercial litigation specialists. She is the current chair of the LIV’s commercial litigation specialist advisory committee.

Jane’s experience spans a broad range of litigation and alternative dispute resolution processes in various state and federal courts and tribunals. She has been involved in a number of multi-party, large scale disputes (including class actions) in the superior courts.

Jane has particular expertise acting for company directors and officers in litigation and regulatory investigations arising from corporate transactions and company failures. Jane’s experience means she can provide sound advice to both company officers and insolvency practitioners when a company is in distress or under external administration, and when steps need to be taken to protect or challenge the competing interests of creditors or other stakeholders. She is also able to provide practical advice to companies and their boards regarding issues such as risk management and insurance.

Jane takes a ‘whole picture’ approach that is focused on achieving early and cost-effective commercial outcomes for her clients. In addition to her technical expertise, if litigation is necessary, Jane’s experience in large-scale litigation means she possesses the project management skills that are essential to the safe and economic carriage of litigation through the competing requirements of the courts’ processes and the strategic and commercial interests of her clients and other stakeholders.
