I am a Special Counsel in the Sydney office of William Roberts. I am an experienced commercial litigator and advisor. Prior to joining William Roberts, I was a barrister at the New South Wales Bar for many years and established Thomson Reuters’ online dispute resolution legal service. Prior to the Bar, I was a Partner in two top tier national and international legal firms.
I have conducted complex commercial litigation cases in all major Australian jurisdictions and understand the costs and risks that are involved with traditional litigation. I have acted in hundreds of mediations throughout my career and understand the importance of parties engaging in early discussions to try to narrow the issues in dispute and settle cases early on. My approach to mediation is to assist the parties in identifying the key issues and exploring all possible areas for compromise, with a view to reaching a commercial and, wherever possible, amicable outcome.
I am a member of the Competition and Consumer Committee of the Law Council of Australia and various other professional associations.
I joined Immediation’s Panel because i think its model is the way forward for cost and time-efficient dispute resolution
