Clients expect me to fill a number of roles for them including:
- Trusted commercial adviser
- Expert legal adviser
- Contributor to decision making
In order to effectively perform these roles my approach is to compile a comprehensive understanding of the client’s business, their objectives and commercial constraints.
This process is essential background to enable me to design the project so that it delivers an outcome that is commercially practical and cost efficient.
The best solutions to legal questions do not come from simply applying legal principles to a situation that is not understood with great clarity.
Often, I am able to add value to clients’ businesses through identifying new opportunities for them and providing access to a quality network of connections both in Australia and overseas.
My expertise is in the fields of corporate and commercial law with a special emphasis in public and private mergers and acquisitions and equity capital markets.
The clients who benefit from this expertise operate in a wide variety of industries including property, private equity, technology, manufacturing, retail, financial and professional services and media and entertainment.
