As a partner in our Dispute Resolution and Intellectual Property Groups in Sydney, I have particular expertise in the strategic handling and resolution of commercial disputes.

I act for Australian and international clients across a range of industries including media and entertainment, technology and communications, life sciences and manufacturing. I have substantial experience litigating cases in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and Federal Court of Australia, including at the appellate level. I also have a strong record in settling cases.

  • My experience in commercial disputes is wide-ranging and includes the enforcement of contractual rights and obligations, IP matters with particular emphasis on copyright, and issues in insolvency and administrative law. In addition to litigation work, I’m often asked to advise in relation to copyright collecting societies, copyright clearance and pre-publication issues.
