I am an associate in our Corporate and Commercial Groups in Sydney, assisting our clients with M&A deals and equity capital market transactions.
I advise clients on their M&A transactions, including recent cross-jurisdictional deals for clients operating in the financial services and technology & communications sectors. Clients dealing with both public and private equity fundraising matters, including IPOs and other secondary raisings including rights issues and placements, are a particular focus. In addition, I also assist clients on other corporate advisory matters (e.g. corporate restructures, reorganisation of capital, compliance with ASX Listing Rules and corporate governance matters).
Assisting clients with the regulatory implications of participating in the Australian financial services sector, including offering payment services and issuing other financial products (e.g. cryptocurrencies and other tokens), is also a focus for me.
Recently, I completed a secondment at one of Australia's leading telcos in its strategy, finance and sales legal team, advising on a range of commercial and regulatory matters. This experience has provided me with a deep understanding of the daily issues faced by companies operating in the technology and communication sectors.
Before joining the team at Bird & Bird, I worked in a litigation practice, providing advice on disputes before the Supreme Court of New South Wales, the District Court of New South Wales and other tribunals.
