I am a Partner at Thomson Geer in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution group with more than 15 years’ experience in a broad range of litigation. I am also a formally trained mediator which gives me the ability to see all angles and potential means of resolving a dispute. I have acted in matters in all courts and tribunals in New South Wales as well as the Supreme Courts of Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory.
In my practice at Thomson Geer, I regularly act for clients in the financial services, education and insurance sectors as well as manufacturers, distributors, mining companies, telcos, property developers and not-for-profit organisations. My experience includes dealing with both litigated and unlitigated complex commercial disputes including negligence actions and also advising ASX-listed corporations. I also have a particular interest in matters of workplace fraud and corruption in business and have managed confidential workplace investigations involving allegations of misconduct by senior executives, and represented clients at the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption.
I am a member of the Law Society of NSW and also of the Women Lawyers Association of NSW.
I joined Immediation's panel because I am excited about being a part of an innovative platform which helps parties resolve their disputes online – in a fast and cost-effective way.
