Trad cashes in through Government legal work

Published:

A law firm part-owned by one of Jackie Trad's private trusts received almost $5.4m in legal fees from the Palaszczuk Labor Government last year, the answer to an LNP question-on-notice has revealed.

The trust has an undisclosed stake in Brisbane law firm DWF – which also employs Ms Trad's husband as a principal lawyer.

It has now been revealed that DWF was the second-highest recipient of Queensland Government WorkCover legal fees in 2018-19, earning $5,396,000 in total.

"This information shows Jackie Trad is earning private profits from the Palaszczuk Labor Government," said LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander.

"Jackie Trad already earns $360,000 as Treasurer, but she is double-dipping through the law firm she co-owns.

"It does not pass the pub test for Jackie Trad to be Treasurer while she's raking in profits from the State Government through her trust's law firm.

"The more we learn about Jackie Trad's personal interests, the worse it gets.

"Jackie Trad should have been sacked long ago over her dodgy property purchase in Woolloongabba.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk is the weakest Premier in living memory and is clearly too gutless to stand up to Jackie Trad."

Last month it was revealed that DWF is also used by government-owned corporation CS Energy.

The value of its contracts has not been disclosed by the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
