"The central focus of Australia's "Company Law Watchdog": ASIC and Corporate Regulation is the issue of ASIC’s effectiveness, and most importantly, how it might be made more effective. Drawing on work undertaken as part of her doctoral thesis, Dr Comino identifies the factors that have hampered ASIC’s effectiveness and which have contributed to its mixed record of success in pursuing those responsible for some of Australian’s largest financial scandals." Extract from the Foreword by Ross Grantham, Professor of Commercial Law, TC Beirne School of Law, UQ.

Before commencing an academic career, she practised as a solicitor working at Morris Fletcher & Cross (now Minter Ellison Lawyers) in the fields of corporate law, leasing, commercial and residential conveyancing, strata development, securities and opinion work.

She has also served on numerous committees, most recently on the Queensland Law Society Business Law Specialist Accreditation Advisory Committee.

Dr Comino’'s 2015 monograph Australia’'s “Company Law Watchdog” - ASIC and Corporate Regulation focuses on exploring how, and to what extent, ASIC in its role as corporate regulator can achieve more effective regulation of the corporations legislation and consolidates her position as a leading researcher in Australia on corporate regulation. Her recent articles have addressed topics in the corporations law field, particularly the problems facing the use of civil penalties by calling for the enactment of legislation to resolve procedural obstacles. Dr Comino holds the degrees of BA, LLB (Hons), LLM and PhD (UQ).
