I have extensive experience in the Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America regions, having managed complex matters across different jurisdictions, both in private practice and as an in-house lawyer. I am admitted in New Zealand and Brazil.
I am experienced at coordinating and working on a wide range of legal issues, in a variety of industries, including technology, travel, telecommunications, oil and gas, airports, electricity and FMCG.
This broad experience has provided me with sophisticated strategic, operational and problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to manage complex detail over short timeframes. I am told that I have strong interpersonal and communication skills, a positive and flexible attitude, and excellent judgment. I am accustomed to working in either small or large legal teams in collaboration with technical staff, senior management and board members.
