Clients work with me because I am passionate about helping them to realise their objectives or solve their problems by providing advice that is strategic, timely and effective.

My experience lies in providing commercial advice to developers, statutory authorities and government with respect to town planning, environmental and liquor laws. That advice relates to transactions and, where necessary, litigation.

To achieve the best legal outcomes I work closely with clients and their consultants to understand the different imperatives of each matter and I always aim to achieve my personal objectives which are to provide focussed advice efficiently and to add value.

Merivale — I provide planning, liquor licensing and property acquisition advice to Merivale and have successfully litigated numerous disputes in the Local Court, District Court, Supreme Court and the Land and Environment Court of NSW.

Stockland — provided advice on redevelopment options for complex sites in the CBD.

Mulpha — advising and acting for Mulpha in judicial review proceedings and subsequent successful merit appeal proceedings in the Land and Environment Court against a development proposal for a complex site in an important heritage precinct in Sydney. I continue to provide planning advice to Mulpha in respect of development proposals, including those litigated in the Land and Environment Court of NSW.

Commercial Client — acted in appeal proceedings in the Land and Environment Court of NSW in gaining approval for a $600 million new master plan community between Anzac Parade and the Coast Golf Course at Little Bay. The issues involved urban design, architecture, traffic and relationship to adjoining open space.
