My recent media work includes defamation litigation and the provision of pre-publication advice. In the technology area, I have worked in a team on a large scale IT dispute, with a focus on software projects.I have experience in pre-litigation steps including strategy, mediation, and the negotiation of settlement agreements. My litigation experience includes large scale discovery review and management, as well as the preparation of pleadings and evidence. I regularly brief both counsel and witnesses and work cooperatively with them to ensure the best outcome for clients.I am a member of the Communications and Media Law Association and a contributor to Bird & Bird's media law publication.Before joining Bird & Bird I worked as a solicitor in insurance litigation (construction focused), and as a paralegal in class actions. Before that, I completed an internship with the ABC disputes team, during which I assisted with the provision of pre-publication advice to journalists, as well as with ongoing defamation and copyright matters.
