I am a senior associate in the Commercial Group based in our Sydney office. I specialise in advising our clients within the technology and communications sector.

I have over 17 years of experience in both private practice and in-house in Auckland, London and Sydney. Having spent 12 years in in-house roles in the broadcasting sector and in financial services, I have a unique perspective on what clients need having been in their shoes.

I specialise in commercial law and have previously advised on commercial contracts, carriage service agreements, data protection (including GDPR), Australian Consumer Law issues, Telecommunications Sector Security Reforms, working with telecommunications and competition regulatory authorities, and on large regulatory projects in the financial services sector.

I am pragmatic and commercially astute, and really enjoy getting involved in new and emerging technology.

Since joining Bird & Bird I have been impressed by the firm's ambition and the technical expertise of my colleagues.
