Having spent almost ten years as a barrister, I bring highly advanced advocacy skills to my commercial litigation practice.
My expertise is in all types of commercial litigation including trade practices, contract, trade marks and copyright, professional negligence, insurance law, consumer protection insolvency and defamation.
Between 2002 and 2005 I was junior counsel in the Bell Litigation in the Supreme Court of Western Australia acting for the liquidator in a winding back claim against Australian and international banks. The matter remains the largest claim ever litigated in an Australian court.
More recently I acted as counsel for Lehman Asia in proceedings in the Full Federal Court relating to the validity of a deed of company arrangement.
Between 2009 and October 2013 I was a partner at Moray & Agnew specialising in commercial dispute resolution and insolvency.
Throughout my career I have appeared regularly in various Courts on both substantive and appeal hearings. I have an in-depth appreciation of the demands associated with successfully fighting cases, as well as the practical steps that are required to successfully construct a case and provide strategic commercial advice throughout the process.
In all matters I deliver a combination of the forensic and strategic skills offered by an advocate to the daily management of matters. This reduces the need for duplication and provides clear direction from the very outset as to the strategy for successfully prosecuting my clients’ interests.
