I am a Nationally Accredited Advanced Mediator with the Resolution Institute and a recognised member of the International Mediation Institute. In 2019, I was a finalist for Australian Mediator of the Year. I am driven by excellence and a commitment to creating new paths to better results.
I am a practising lawyer who has more experience at the negotiation table than most as a client, as a lawyer and as a mediator. I understand what it takes to resolve a dispute and am proactive about getting the parties there. I have experience in a broad range of commercial and insurance litigation including in the areas of contract disputes, public liability, personal injury, professional negligence, medical malpractice, financial services litigation, defamation actions, workplace disputes, superannuation claims, property damage, product claims, partnership dissolutions and institutional abuse.

What I love most about mediation is that the parties have complete autonomy to decide what an acceptable outcome is to them. Those in the dispute are best placed to know where the answer is.
