Trent is a proud First Nations man who grew up on Darkinjung Country. Trent is the First Nations Advisor and Lawyer at Ashurst, which is the first and only role of its kind within a global law firm. Prior to joining Ashurst, Trent has held roles with Australian Government Solicitor and the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability where Trent was the first Aboriginal lawyer on staff. After noticing a gap in legal knowledge for young lawyers, Trent developed course content for the University Of New South Wales Practical Legal Training Program, which looks at ways to work most effectively with First Nations clients. Trent is involved with New South Wales Young Lawyers, is on the Indigenous Issues Committee of the Law Society of New South Wales and is Co-Chair of the Legal Profession Reconciliation Network.
Trent looks forward to promoting and advancing the voices of First Nations Peoples through JR NSW, noting that First Nations Peoples must be the first voices listened to.
