About my services

20+ years commercial litigation and mediation experience, LIV Accredited Specialist in Mediation, PON Harvard Law School Advanced Mediation training, Nationally Accredited Mediator specialising in contract, corporations, franchise, property, leasing and IP disputes.  Online ODR, video and telephone dispute resolution services available.


Anna’s dispute resolution experience, including having been a Litigation Principal of a national law firm, provides her with a vivid insight into the challenges faced by participants in our legal system as well as the many benefits of early mediation in dispute resolution.

Anna brings to her mediations her compassion for those in dispute, specialist skills in negotiation and facilitation, as well as her vast understanding of the law, court processes and strategies. 

Anna is keenly aware of the complexities (and often limitations) of our legal system and how protracted litigation can impact both financially and emotionally upon parties, expend the energy and resources of a business, its owners and managers, often distracting them from what is most important, such as getting on with business and their lives.
