I have a broad corporate and commercial practice, with experience in public and private merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions, capital raising, corporate governance and commercial contracting. My clients span industry sectors such as retirement living and aged care, agribusiness (especially sugar, beef and timber), and mining services and procurement.

I am accustomed to managing transactions of all shapes and sizes, from major capital raisings and M&A transactions to initial private equity investments. My skill is in meticulously identifying and dealing with the issues that can arise in these transactions and documenting them appropriately.

Above all, I pride myself on providing timely and commercial advice to help my clients achieve their goals.
