I was admitted as a Legal Practitioner of the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2003.
After graduating I worked in mid to top tier law firms in both Australia and the United Kingdom. I specialised in employment and industrial relations law. That experience led me to become an in-house lawyer for multinational recruitment and outsourced labour companies.
I relocated to Singapore to manage the regional legal affairs of a global recruitment company listed on the London Stock Exchange. I was responsible for providing legal advice to the company’s seventeen offices in nine countries around the Asia Pacific region.
Upon my return to Australia I gained academic experience by teaching at universities in the areas of corporate law, commercial law, internet law, and alternative dispute resolution. During this time, I also spent a considerable amount of time working within community legal centres, where I represented a broad range of people on personal legal matters.
In a twist of fate I was enticed up to Broome, Western Australia, where I became involved in community law work, particularly relating to child protection. I moved my firm to the Barossa in 2019 where I assisted people in remote communities in the areas of Commercial and Business Law, Family Law, Workplace Law, Wills and Estates and Debt Recovery.
I now operate my firm nationally from NSW, assisting the Australian Event Industry with Commercial and Employment Law matters.
