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.
