Partner, Melbourne
I am a commercial litigator with significant expertise in advising clients on high-profile commercial disputes and dispute-avoidance measures.

I frequently act in large scale commercial disputes and regulatory matters, including claims brought by the ACCC and ASIC.  I also act for a number of clients in the gaming and wagering space and have extensive experience in relation to disputes, advisory and regulatory matters in this space.
