Understanding my clients and their commercial objectives is at the heart of what I do. I work hard for my clients to provide results.
Complex legal issues are usually best resolved quickly and practically.
Prior to joining Addisons in 2012, I worked as an Associate to a Federal Court Judge. This required me to have regard to the fine detail of matters which is where the solution usually lies. I have taken that learning into private legal practice.
I work for major corporations as well as individuals on a range of complex matters.
