I am a senior associate in our firm's Sydney office, helping clients to resolve their disputes.

Since joining Bird & Bird in late 2014, I have acted for clients in a broad range of commercial disputes, particularly in the retail and consumer and telecommunications sectors. I have also advised major clients of the firm in the aviation, finance and financial regulation, and energy and utilities sectors. I am an experienced litigator and have acted in disputes in the Federal Court, the Federal Circuit Court, and the Supreme and Inferior Courts of a number of states.

I help clients find commercial and practical solutions to their disputes. Clients value my understanding of their business and industry, my ability to provide clear and concise advice, and my responsiveness. I work closely with the head of the Dispute Resolution Group in Sydney, Sophie Dawson, to provide quality and timely advice to clients on their options.

  • My recent experience includes working with other members of the Sydney Dispute Resolution team, led by Sophie Dawson, on two large disputes concerning multinational software providers, advising a large telecommunications company with respect to their commercial leases, and acting for a Government agency in relation to an administrative law dispute.
