Profile

This work has given me a full understanding of the competing priorities of commercial and government clients. I am dedicated to addressing each client’s priorities, and protecting personal and corporate reputations.

I regularly conduct proceedings before the Federal Court of Australia, the High Court of Australia, state Supreme Courts, and other courts and tribunals. In doing so, I collaborate seamlessly with other advisers, achieving client priorities within time parameters and budgets.
