on the work that we do
 

Special Counsel
My aim as a lawyer is to assist clients achieve the outcomes they want and to deliver advice that plays a practical role in assisting them with their everyday business challenges and opportunities.
 
 
Special Counsel
As a litigator in the media and intellectual property practice, I advise clients on all issues relating to publication of content from pre-publication clearances covering defamation, contempt, copyright, privacy and reporting restrictions across all media platforms including press, television, radio, internet and social media.
 
 
Special Counsel
One of my key strengths is my tenacity. I strive for the best outcome possible for my clients, whether it is advice work or litigation. I want them to achieve their objectives as much as they do. My clients trust me as part of their team.
 

Special Counsel
Commercial litigation has been the focus of my work since 1997 and this has equipped me with broad experience advising and appearing for clients in commercial disputes and litigation.
 
 
Special Counsel
My practice tends to focus upon initial public offerings, capital raisings and mergers and acquisitions.
 
 
Special Counsel
Being dually qualified in German and Australian law puts me in a unique position to advise European companies on their investments and business activities in Australia.
