I help clients traverse the regulatory environment to market and sell their products in Australia, and I am an asset to them if a dispute arises.

I have over 10 years' of experience assisting clients in negotiating the Australian regulatory environment, particularly in the technology, telecommunications, gaming and electronics, consumer products and food and beverage industries.

I relish the opportunity to assist clients with launching and marketing their products. I regularly advise clients in relation to compliance with the Competition and Consumer Act and Australian Consumer Law, particularly in relation to consumer guarantees, as well as their obligations in relation to product liability and recall issues. I work closely with business teams to ensure a deep understanding of product ranges to ensure compliance with Australian standards and regulations, including packaging and product compliance.

I love to hear what makes clients' products exceptional and see my role as being one to help them communicate that more broadly. I regularly assist clients in undertaking trade promotions and advertising campaigns to ensure compliance with Australian law, including by drafting and negotiating distribution, sponsorship and talent agreements.

I have previously worked in the in-house legal team of Australia's national broadcaster and have undertaken a secondment with a key client of the firm. I draw on this experience to seamlessly integrate into business groups to provide pragmatic and practical advice with the aim of getting the best results.

On the off chance that clients' trade practices receive scrutiny from Australian regulators or their competitors, I utilise my extensive litigation experience as I have been involved in a number of high profile cases involving breaches of the Competition and Consumer Act. My litigation experience includes a leading High Court case on misleading and deceptive conduct, a high-profile cartel conduct matter involving well-known global brands, as well as a matter involving the Australian Consumer Law provisions regarding statutory guarantees.
