Prop­er­ty, Plan­ning & Projects

I am part of the Prop­er­ty and Com­mer­cial team at Swaab, prac­tic­ing pri­mar­i­ly in retail, com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al leas­ing Aus­tralia wide.

I pride myself on devel­op­ing a strong rap­port with each of my clients – whether they be indi­vid­u­als, SMS­Fs, small busi­ness­es or nation­al com­pa­nies. In deal­ing with my clients I believe that com­mu­ni­ca­tion is key, and I am to keep my clients involved and informed at all stages of the legal process.
