"I am committed to obtaining results for my clients and always aim to provide advice that is timely and focussed on my clients’ goals."

With nearly a decade’s experience in corporate and commercial law, Rebecca provides listed companies, SMEs, start ups and investors with legal advice relating to M&A and capital raising. Rebecca also provides legal advice on other corporate and commercial matters, including contracts, corporate governance and employee share plans.

Rebecca is well placed to help her clients given her thorough knowledge of Australian corporations law, contract law and the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) Listing Rules. This knowledge is supplemented by an understanding of relevant market practice and trends, which enables Rebecca to help clients navigate both legal and commercial issues.

Ultimately, Rebecca helps her clients achieve positive business outcomes with solutions that are underpinned by commercially-sound legal advice. Rebecca believes that lawyers need to be focused on solutions, and not problems, and to not forget that they are just cogs in the machine. What Rebecca’s clients appreciate about her is that the advice she provides is timely, focussed on the client’s goals and given in a manner that non-lawyers can understand. Clients also appreciate Rebecca’s keen eye for detail, whilst not losing sight of the bigger picture.
