I am an arbitrator, mediator, expert determiner and barrister at Francis Burt Chambers, Perth.
I have practised as an arbitrator, mediator and expert determiner since 2005, focusing on domestic and international disputes in the infrastructure energy and resources sectors, and on disputes arising under complex statutory frameworks.
I am a Fellow of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and Resolution Institute (Grade 1). I am a Chartered Arbitrator. I am the Chairman of the ADR Committee of the Law Society of Western Australia and a member of the Law Council of Australia Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee. I am the Acting Corruption and Crime Commissioner (WA), a member of the Anti-dumping Review Panel (Comm) and a Senior Sessional Member of the State Administrative Tribunal (WA). I am on the Panel of the Economic Regulation Authority of WA under Part 23 of the National Gas Rules and under the Railways (Access) Code and of the Essential Services Commission of South Australia. I am a member of the Board of the Government Employees Superannuation Board (WA).
For a number of years, I was a partner at Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills).
