I am an experienced corporate partner in our Sydney office. I specialise in mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets, corporate advisory and securities law.
I have over 20 years' of ECM and M&A expertise, in both public and private transactions, with a strong technology and financial services focus. In equity capital markets, I have extensive experience advising both issuers and brokers on initial public offerings and secondary raisings in Australia.
Private capital raisings, particularly for earlier stage technology companies, also regularly cross my desk. In mergers and acquisitions, many clients trust me to support them, whether they are involved in public regulated transactions or in private M&A transactions.
My practice also extends to advising on general corporate matters. The ASX listing rules, corporate governance, executive remuneration, disclosure matters, shareholder activism, fiduciary duties and other general corporate and securities law issues are all fields where I can assist. My work also extends to financial services matters in general, building on tech as a driver for corporate deals. I have extensive experience in liaising with Australian regulatory bodies, including the Australian Securities Exchange, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the Foreign Investment Review Board.
What inspires me is making a difference for clients, working in partnership with them, providing technically sound advice relevant to their commercial objectives and needs. In my work, I never lose sight of the importance of excellent communication, and being personable and approachable.
