Capability

I am an experienced commercial lawyer who has worked in in-house and private practice roles across the public and private sectors. I also spent 10 years running my own business while my children were young.

Early on in my career, I focused primarily on commercial property work; advising clients across a broad range of industries including including property developers and investors, banks, insurance companies, supermarkets, telcos, airports, regional authorities, and central and local government. More recently, while supporting in house legal teams have enjoyed working on a much broader range of legal matters as well as commercial property transactions.

I am adaptable and able to tackle new situations and tasks with confidence. I enjoy stripping away ambiguity and legalese from documents and advice and presenting clients with solutions they can understand.
