I'm a senior associate in the Sydney Dispute Resolution Group, with diverse experience in dispute resolution and prevention, and compliance and investigations.
While I have a special interest in the media and entertainment and technology sectors, I work with clients in a range of industries to manage critical incidents and strategic disputes. In my role, I work with our clients to manage and resolve existing disputes, as well as to create compliance systems that proactively manage risk.
My experience is consistent with our firm's track record in the media and technology sectors. On the media side, I have provided pre-publication advice to television, print and radio publishers, and have managed defamation complaints and litigation. I have also appeared in matters regarding contempt of court and statutory restrictions on publication, including suppression orders. In the technology area, I have worked with clients on large and small-scale IT disputes, with a particular focus on software project disputes.
My other particular area of expertise is in seeking to prevent, and in responding to, critical incidents. This includes establishing compliance and reporting systems and training employees of all levels and across industries - including in the media, technology, energy and education sectors - in relation to their content. These compliance systems have related to subject matters including anti-bribery and corruption, anti-money laundering, modern slavery, workplace health and safety and appropriate workplace behaviours.
I am also experienced at conducting investigations into critical incidents, and assisting clients to communicate the results of those investigations to internal and external stakeholders. As an experienced public speaker, I am always keen to assist clients by facilitating executive level discussions, seminars and conferences.
