My practice principally involves public and private mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic corporate advice. I also regularly advise on listing rule and corporations act compliance and corporate governance issues.

 

The clients for whom I act range from large overseas listed companies to large private client groups through to high net worth individuals. These diverse clients also operate in a wide variety of industries including retail, financial and professional services, media and entertainment, property, private equity, technology and manufacturing.

 

My transactional experience has been extremely varied from advising on large scale public company and international matters to small strategic acquisitions for clients.
 
After being admitted to practice in 2005 and prior to joining Addisons in 2014, I was a senior associate at Freehills and Arnold Bloch Leibler.

Collateral Benefits - it doesn't matter if it quacks like a duck!
24/7/2014
The recently concluded $2.2 billion acquisition of David Jones Limited (DJs) by the South African retailer Woolworths Holdings Limited (Woolworths) has provided a fascinating consideration of the application of the “collateral benefits” principle in the context of change of control transactions. Its rationale and outcome may well encourage the offer of collateral benefits to key target shareholders, in an attempt to get such a transaction across the line.
