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.

Personal Comment

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.
