I am a corporate and commercial lawyer who provides strategic advice to early-stage start-ups and small to medium enterprises, guiding them through crucial aspects of corporate structuring, corporate governance, intellectual property commercialisation, and market expansion into and out of Australia.

I also have a keen interest in technology and assisting clients in negotiating technology-based contracts for both suppliers and consumers.

My approach involves crafting comprehensive and holistic legal solutions that align with clients’ business objectives, identifying and navigating key issues and risks, and implementing practical strategies.

I have advised clients on a range of corporate and commercial matters across various industries including FMCG, healthcare, manufacturing, professional services and technology.

With a well-rounded background that also includes property, and banking and finance experience, I bring a unique blend of legal and commercial insights.  This experience allows me to assist clients in safeguarding and optimising the profitability of their business assets, whether tangible or intangible, ranging from property to intellectual property.
