I am committed to obtaining results for my clients and always aim to provide advice that is timely and focussed on my clients’ goals.
I have acted for clients from a diverse range of industries, including fashion, funeral services, mining and resources, technology and financial services.
I have advised both listed and unlisted companies in relation to mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings and restructurings, as well as a broad range of corporate and commercial matters, including directors’ duties, contract negotiation and general commercial, and corporate governance.
My work in these areas requires a thorough understanding of Australian corporations law, contract law and the ASX Listing Rules.
I am currently completing a Masters of Law at the University of Sydney.
BA – Australian National University
LLB (Hons) – Australian National University
