I have led the legal teams for many of Australia’s most prominent privatisations and government asset restructures. I enjoy working with teams on large and complex deals that have a meaningful impact on the economy and allow me to build lasting relationships with clients and other advisers.

In addition to transactional work, I have a deep interest in the operation and regulation of transport and energy assets. These include ports, airports, gas networks, and electricity generators and networks.
