I’m an experienced and capable lawyer and legal services manager with significant in-house, public sector, commercial, property and corporate experience.
With a diverse background in legal, executive and commercial roles, I bring a broad perspective and appreciate the need for practical and reliable advice aligned to the organisation’s strategic/commercial objectives and risk tolerance.
What I enjoy the most about working as an in-house lawyer is being able to truly work as part of the business, developing the deep organisational knowledge that enables you to take your delivery of legal services to another level, and building enduring relationships.
