About my services

Highly experienced in commercial and workplace disputes.

Having settled many commercial disputes in the process of litigation, I realised that many of these could have been resolved many months, and thousands of dollars, earlier if mediation had taken place prior to issuing legal proceedings.  With more and more mandatory pre-litigation mediation in commercial areas such as franchising and retail tenancies, I an advocate for earlier mediation in a wide range of commercial disputes.

I believe that conflict and disputes can be resolved constructively to preserve the longer term relationship.  I also believe that this can be done much more cost effectively than would happen in court.

I bring considerable commercial experience to my mediation practice, having worked previously in the law, investment banking and insolvency.  I aim to get the best solution possible and assist in maintaining on ongoing relationship.

I also offer negotiation consulting services to assist parties in structuring agreements that maximise value and reduce the risk of future conflict.

Experience and qualifications

I have over 20 years commercial experience in the fields of law, corporate finance and insolvency.  Working for international consultancies and banks in Melbourne, London and Dubai I have been exposed to a huge number of different industries and a wide range of disputes.
