Attorney-General Vickie Chapman said Toni Vozzo had been selected to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Magistrate Alfio Grasso.
“Toni Vozzo has worked in the legal sector for over 30 years, with a focus on commercial litigation and dispute resolution and has been widely recognised as a leader in the field,” Chapman said.
“She has handled numerous, complex matters including class actions against Bank SA, and global ratings agency Standard & Poor’s, as well as multi-million-dollar commercial litigation.
“In addition to her commitment to her clients, Ms Vozzo has also improved practitioners’ access to wellbeing support services, through her work as the inaugural chair of the Law Society’s Wellbeing and Resilience Committee since 2012.
“She has also been actively involved as a member of the Indigenous Law Students’ Mentoring Scheme Committee since 2016.
“She is an exceptionally qualified candidate and I have no doubt she will make an excellent addition to the Magistrates Court.”
Vozzo is due to begin the new role on July 20.
