Profile

I was previously a litigation partner in a commercial law firm before becoming a barrister in 2004.  During that time I have acted as counsel from the District Court through to the Supreme Court and have developed an ability to unravel complex problems and get to the heart of the facts.  It may sound simple, but I find great satisfaction in helping resolve legal problems.  Some of the cases where I have acted as counsel include: 

  • claims between shareholders for unfairly prejudicial conduct;
  • claims by liquidators seeking to set aside payments made to creditors;
  • adjudications involving construction contracts;
  • claims against trustees for breaching their duties and transferring money to trusts;
  • claims by liquidators against directors for reckless trading and other breaches of directors’ duties;
  • proceedings against a vendor who refused to settle the sale of a commercial property;
  • proceedings relating to breaches of the Fair Trading Act 1986 and other misleading conduct;
  • injunction proceedings to prevent a developer from selling properties in breach of its duty to obtain titles;
  • injunction proceedings over the disclaimer of a lease by a liquidator;
  • injunction proceedings to prevent a mortgagee exercising its power of sale;
  • proceedings seeking orders for the return of chattels misappropriated by another party.
