With 13 years’ experience working within in-house legal teams I have a broad commercial legal background. As Senior Legal Counsel at TelstraClear Limited I oversaw a number of changes in ownership as well as providing advice on an extensive range of contractual and compliance matters. I have held roles with responsibility for the company secretarial function, procurement contracting and marketing legal support.
I understand the value that an in-house legal team is able to provide to its client organisation, and the importance of building respectful positive relationships to enable that to happen.
