About Me

I am a partner in our Sydney office, where I specialise in media and technology disputes and advice.

I have over 15 years' experience in managing IT&T and media disputes across a range of jurisdictions and forums. I enjoy working closely with my clients to devise and implement strategic and effective approaches to case formulation, presentation and resolution.

My technology dispute experience covers a variety of technologies and complex implementations including billing systems, inventory management systems, customer management systems, e-Health systems and satellite and cable transmission networks. I analyse complex IT supply contracts and give detailed written advice on liability and remedies arising under contract and the common law.

I have also managed many disputes for media organisations such as defamation, copyright, contempt and suppression order matters. I regularly provide pre-publication advice to editors, journalists and producers in relation to print, digital and film publications.

In addition to my disputes practice, I advise public and private sector clients with respect to Australia's privacy and data breach legislation. I also have a keen interest in assisting clients with internal and regulatory investigations.
