I have advised clients in the building and construction industry for nearly 20 years. My clients have included top tier builders, developers, subcontractors, government regulators, liquidators and individuals. I also have experience in advising on both ‘front’ and ‘back end’ building and construction matters.

This experience has given me in-depth knowledge of the construction industry, as well as the capability to understand the needs of each client and develop tailored strategies and solutions for their unique situation. I believe in providing each client with realistic and comprehensible advice and options.
