I have been at the bar since May 2014.
From 2008 to 2014, I was at Allens (appointed Senior Associate in 2011). I had the carriage of a number of complex pieces of commercial litigation that ran to final hearings and appeals – which was valuable experience in understanding the end client’s aims and commercial imperatives, managing teams of lawyers, and working with counsel to prepare cases for hearings.
In 2007, I worked as a graduate at Sparke Helmore, spending half the year doing migration litigation, and half the year doing commercial litigation.
In 2006, after finishing by BA/LLB at UNSW in 2005, I worked as the Tipstaff to the Hon. Justice P.A. Bergin, then the Commercial List Judge in the Equity Division.
Outside of work, I’m married, have two kids, two dogs, two cats, and two rats. (I’m not the pet lover I just go along with it.) I’m a fan of the NBA. I live in the suburbs and mow my own lawn (perhaps not as often as I should)!
