The combination of working as an in-house counsel and as a lawyer in private practice has equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of the needs and objectives of my clients. The emphasis of my practice methodology is to first develop a thorough and deep understanding of my clients’ businesses so that my advice to them is pragmatic, commercially focussed and geared towards assisting in achieving business objectives.


My experience spans commercial negotiations, consumer law issues and compliance matters such as privacy.
The scope of my work has included advising companies and drafting agreements in respect of outsourcing of business processes, data transfers and internet marketplaces.


I also have a strong interest in technology, software and application development and therefore I invest time investigating the legal issues behind the latest and greatest internet craze.


I commenced practising in 2000 at (then) Blake Dawson Waldron.  I have since spent time practising as a corporate counsel at a variety of both Australian owned and multinational companies in the retail, finance and information technology sectors before joining Addisons in January 2016.
