Welcome

I am a commercially-focused lawyer, based in Melbourne, Australia, with over two decades of experience in major infrastructure, resources and energy projects, and their development and financing.

Before establishing my own legal practice in 2014, I spent 21 years as a partner at major law firm Allens.  My time there included seven years living and working in Asia – three based in Hong Kong and four in Singapore – working on transactions across North and South-East Asia.

I offer commercial legal services to clients in Australia, Asia and elsewhere, particularly focusing on the resources and energy, infrastructure and financial services sectors.

My value proposition

I offer the service and depth of experience and expertise of a senior partner of a major law firm, but on an individual basis.  Thus I can offer:

  • a lower hourly rate
  • dealing directly with me as the person fully responsible for your work
  • much reduced possibility of conflict of interest.

You will deal with me alone, and I will be fully accountable.  You will not be dealing with, or paying the costs of, a pyramid of junior lawyers.
