I am a litigation specialist who has worked on a range of commercial disputes for a list of blue-chip clients. My recent matters have focused on project financing and property development, banking, mining and exploration, broadcasting, intellectual property and privatisation of government owned entities. I have worked on a number of claims arising out of foreign exchange loans, misappropriated funds and major corporate collapses.
I also have extensive experience in a variety of insurance work. For some years, I have conducted litigation for London underwriters, which has often involved complex multi-million-dollar claims. I specialise in professional negligence and business interruption claims and policy disputes.
Recent matters have focused on various contractual disputes for major companies, corporate responsibility issues in the Middle East, PNG and Asia, anti-dumping issues and anti-corruption strategies.
