Focus

I'm focused on assisting organisations realise their goals and vision. I leverage my strong legal and financial background, as well as marketing and IT experience, to mentor clients in various aspects of their business and corporate strategy. My mission is to share my know-how, operate with integrity and foster the growth of my clients, my network and myself.

Relationships

The work undertaken for most clients has been of an ongoing nature, hence I usually work very closely with clients and consider myself part of their team. Over the years a total of 6 clients have provided me with rent free office space within their premises from which to assist them more closely, whilst also undertaking my private practise.

Clientele

I work with corporate in-house legal teams as a freelance lawyer assisting with overflow. My clients include public and large private corporations with national and international operations predominantly in the retail & sports sectors.  In addition, I represent a select handful of SMEs that pique my interest.

Writing

Believe it or not, but writing contracts, emails and letters all day isn't as exciting as one might imagine!

 

For this reason, I've turned my hand to writing about more pleasurable pursuits, such as skiing.  I currently, write and edit for SnowAction, Australia's #1 snow sports magazine, with a CAB audited distribution of 25,000 copies.

 

I've also contributed to the blog of my client Anaconda, the adventure & outdoor specialists.
