Lucas Robertson was born and educated in Melbourne, Australia, obtaining a Bachelor of Laws with Honours at the University of Melbourne and commencing his professional career in 1995 with the commercial firm Purves Clarke Richards, which later merged to form the Melbourne office of Gadens Lawyers. During this time, Lucas specialised in intellectual property and technology while enjoying the chance to engage in a broad spectrum of general commercial work.
Lucas made the move in-house in 2001, joining the legal team at Coles Myer Ltd, Australia’s largest retail chain. There he found himself in a range of legal and compliance roles amidst continual restructures and other major challenges for the company.
In March 2008, Lucas moved to Victoria Racing Club as its sole legal counsel. Lucas has a wife and three young children. When time permits, he continues to pursue musical and sporting interests and remains active in the local school community.
