I’ve been working as a lawyer since 2008, and while I enjoyed working in traditional firms, I wanted to work more collaboratively with my clients and find more innovative ways to help them achieve their commercial goals. As a result I established Boss Lawyers.
My vision for Boss Lawyers is to create a positive choice for our clients—one that gives them clarity in procedures, certainty in costs, and a sense of having a strong advocate in their corner; someone that is as committed to their business’s success as they are.
In my career to date, I’ve been fortunate to gain extensive experience in a wide range of legal matters: I’ve represented clients in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts of Queensland, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, and the Federal Court of Australia. I’ve also advised organisations on issues arising from contract disputes, negligence claims, partnership disputes, corporation law, property-related litigation and intellectual property.
My passion for advocacy, and taking a different approach to law, goes beyond my professional life. I’m active in a number of community organisations, donating my time and expertise to organisations I care about, like the Arts Law Centre of Australia and Touch Football Australia. I’m also a member of the Queensland Law Society.
I am the current Councillor (Qld Division) for the Law & Legislation Portfolio of the Australian Institute of Credit Management (AICM) and I also sit as a member on a national disciplinary tribunal panel for an Australian accounting professional body.
I’ve been working as a lawyer exclusively in commercial litigation and dispute resolution since 2010. In that time, I have acted for individuals, partnerships, trustees and private companies in a variety of matters and court and tribunal proceedings, and I have developed a particular interest in assisting clients with issues arising from contractual and building and construction disputes.
My approach to commercial disputes is pragmatic and outcome-orientated. I work with our clients to understand their issues, and to provide them with practical advice and quality service aimed at protecting and pursuing their interests, and obtaining the best possible outcome in the most cost-effective way.
I am admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia.
