I am a Partner in the Banking and Finance Group, with over nine years’ experience in advising banks, financial institutions and private lenders across a range of transactional banking and finance matters.

My broad range of finance experience encompasses corporate and institutional banking, business banking and retail banking, as well as several niche sectors such as religious and charitable organisations, childcare and health, liquor and gaming and management and letting rights. I have extensive transactional banking knowledge supplemented by experience in recovery, realisation and insolvency matters.

I also have expertise in construction and development finance and have acted on behalf of receivers, mortgagees and other secured creditors enforcing and realising secured property.

I believe in developing and maintaining strong client relationships and providing accurate and timely advice to achieve practical commercial solutions.
