I am a senior counsel practising at the Bar in Sydney. I was appointed silk in 2011.
I practised as a site engineer on high rise projects in the Sydney CBD before transitioning to law. My building background has seen my practice at the Bar focus principally on construction disputes, but I also have a commercial and insurance / professional negligence practice that widens my exposure to other areas of industry and the professions. My practice includes private arbitrations. I have participated in many mediations, variously as mediator and as an advocate for a party, so have an appreciation of the motivations, and the pressures, that can bear upon participants.
