I am a Barrister, an accredited mediator (in Australia and the UK) and a seasoned international M&A practitioner with extensive negotiation experience.
From working as an international M&A lawyer in England and Russia for over 15 years, I have assisted clients to negotiate complex large deals (ranging in size from $50m to $1bn+) in different industry sectors (including real estate, telecommunications and infrastructure).
Prior to joining the VicBar in October 2021, I provided legal consulting services to clients in Russia and Australia (including UK Magic Circle firm Clifford Chance, global law firm DLA Piper and ultra-high net worth individuals and fintech start-ups) from 2015 to September 2021.
Before then, I worked as Counsel for US international firm White & Case from 2007 to 2014 (in England and Russia), and spent 3 years at Clayton Utz (Melbourne) from 2004 to 2007, where I completed my articles and worked in the M&A/Corporate team.
