Me in a minute

I am most proud when I can help clients achieve their overarching goals.

I began my early career as a private client lawyer in Australia. It became evident to me very quickly that the majority of our clients' wealth was grown in private enterprise and so I began to pursue more and more corporate work. What I've found over time is that I find it so rewarding to work where people's personal and business interests meet - whether founders growing and realising the companies they first began, to helping investors secure their and their families' futures.
