I am a senior associate in our Corporate Group in Sydney. My focus is on cross-border M&A and joint ventures in the energy & mining and agriculture sectors.

Having been fortunate enough to live in South Africa, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia, I decided to pursue my career in Australia after completing my training and being admitted in South Africa.

I now principally assist clients with M&A transactions and joint ventures involving investment into Australia as well as emerging markets in Africa and Southeast Asia. With such transactions lending themselves to the relevant jurisdictions, I have had the opportunity to assist with inbound technology related acquisitions in Australia as well as energy, mining and agricultural investments in emerging markets, including Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Mozambique.

Further, as dictated by the needs of cross-border transactions, part of our role in advising on such deals is to act as an interface with various foreign investment regulators. Accordingly, I also advise clients in relation to obtaining approval of the Foreign Investment Review Board in Australia and in maintaining compliance with various countries' national reserve bank's exchange control regulations.
