Profile

My Adelaide-based team uses a managed services model to provide clients with national and exclusive directly outsourced legal support, in agreed packaged legal areas. This frees up the in-house legal teams of clients to focus on key strategic, mission-critical matters, and gives them a national solution of consistent legal advice and policy interpretation. In addition, offering clients fixed, value-based pricing provides them with greater budget certainty, especially in complex legal areas.

Career highlights

  • Transaction structuring
