on the work that we do
“My aim is to ensure that my clients can move forward in their business while taking into account the relevant regulatory regime
 

Partner
I do not believe that all client needs are all the same, nor are they necessarily similar.
 
 
Partner
My work involves advising both public and private companies on a broad range of business matters and acting as external general counsel for a number of companies.
 
 
Partner
I work closely with both private and publicly listed companies on a range of corporate and commercial transactions, providing astute and commercial legal advice.
 

Partner
My clients rely on me – and I work hard to understand their business.
 
 
Partner
I believe that a legal adviser can be most effective if they have a good understanding of their clients' businesses.
 
 
Partner
With a background in-house and as an investment banker, I understand where clients are coming from. Legal advice not only needs to be technically correct, it needs to be useful.
 

Partner
My working philosophy is “entirely solutions-oriented” but I also take a “whole of business approach” not just a legal approach.
 
 
Partner
I am fully invested in the commercial success of my clients – I take the success or failure of my clients personally.
 
 
Partner
My work involves advising on some of the most significant and high profile development projects in Australia. My expertise spans property and infrastructure development; mining and resources; planning, environmental and administrative law matters.
 

Partner
I believe that the reason clients ask me to work on their projects is that they want a teammate, someone who complements their experience and understanding of their business with legal skills and expertise that helps their business become more successful.
 
 
Partner
I don’t manage the message that my clients are seeking to publish. Rather, I work closely with my clients, including executives, creative staff and reporters to find a way to allow them to publish in a way which lessens any risk.
 
 
Partner
The best solutions to legal questions do not come from simply applying legal principles to a situation that is not understood with great clarity.
 

Partner
The focus of my work is enabling the business of my clients. While I advise clients in a number of areas of law and from different industry groups, the overriding objective that guides my work is to ensure that my clients can do business within an environment of minimum risk while fully exploiting their intellectual property and inherent competitive advantages.
 
 
Partner
The objective that drives my litigation practice is to keep my clients out of Court wherever possible and to seek an alternative to litigation.
 
 
Partner
The work that I undertake with clients is across the spectrum of M&A, corporate and commercial transactions. I bring the additional perspective gained through investing a significant part of my career working on the client side of transactions holding executive roles from corporate development and strategy to line management with P&L responsibility.
 

Partner
My stance on negotiating major transactions is to always be aware of our client’s objectives, while also recognising that such transactions are not a competition.
