Part­ner, Lit­i­ga­tion, Insol­ven­cy

I am an expe­ri­enced com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tor, with a track record of suc­cess­ful out­comes in con­test­ed lit­i­ga­tion, as well as out of court dis­pute res­o­lu­tion. I am known for my strate­gic approach to all forms of lit­i­ga­tion and dis­pute res­o­lu­tion and my abil­i­ty to clear­ly iden­ti­fy and address issues to resolve dis­putes in a way that meets client objectives.

Expe­ri­ence

My clients include pub­lic and pri­vate Aus­tralian and over­seas cor­po­ra­tions, Local Gov­ern­ment, small to medi­um enter­pris­es and indi­vid­u­als. I have act­ed in pro­ceed­ings involv­ing con­trac­tu­al dis­putes, director’s civ­il lia­bil­i­ty, cor­po­rate and per­son­al insol­ven­cy, part­ner­ship dis­putes, com­pe­ti­tion and con­sumer law (pre­vi­ous­ly trade prac­tices), prop­er­ty, tax­a­tion, trusts and neg­li­gence in the Supreme Court, Dis­trict Court, fed­er­al courts and var­i­ous tribunals. 

I have also act­ed in rep­re­sen­ta­tive pro­ceed­ings (class actions) in the Fed­er­al Court of Aus­tralia. My par­tic­u­lar inter­est is in com­mer­cial dis­putes, director’s lia­bil­i­ty and insolvency.
