Commercial, Corporate, Insolvency
I am a commercial and corporate lawyer with extensive banking, finance and securities enforcement experience. My style is approachable, personal and responsive. I am committed to taking the necessary time to fully understand my clients’ businesses and their objectives so as to deliver timely, cost-effective and commercial outcomes.
I have practiced as a commercial transactional lawyer for over 16 years. I have advised clients in respect of complex and significant-value acquisitions across a wide range of industry sectors including healthcare, real estate, information technology and finance.
I act for small to medium enterprises, listed entities and high net worth individuals in a broad range of transactions, including shareholder and joint venture arrangements, property developments, distribution and manufacturing and licence arrangements.
I also oversee a busy commercial lending practice in which I act for banks and non-bank lenders primarily in trade and receivables finance.
I have particular expertise in respect of the Personal Properties Securities Act and I regularly act for financiers, suppliers and insolvency practitioners on matters concerning its application. I have drafted amendments to the facility and security documents and drafted PPSA compliance manual for a major, national invoice financier. Furthermore, I have acted in only one of two reported decisions in the Federal Court concerning an application to re-instate security interests which had been removed in error from the Personal Property Securities Register.
