As joint head of our Business Advisory and Dispute Resolution Group, I have over 30 years experience guiding my clients through the often complex maze of commercial and corporate law.
I specialise in the sale and acquisition of companies and businesses, but regardless of their size, my clients’ legal needs are often similar: corporate governance, contracts and agreements, business structures, compliance, sales and acquisitions, and franchising among others. I advise and help clients navigate around potential risks and help them plan in reaching their objectives in an efficient, cost-effective way.
I believe in partnering with my clients to achieve strategic and commercially effective outcomes.
