Benefitting from 15 years in litigation, I advise on a wide range of disputes and offer particular expertise in intellectual property, competition and insolvency law.

I am a solicitor advocate with rights of audience in all courts and in all proceedings. Whether I’m advising an individual or a large multi-national corporation, I work to achieve my client’s objectives whether it requires aggressive action or a more conciliatory approach.

I lead SA Law’s insolvency and intellectual property practice areas, where I advise clients on both the non-contentious and contentious aspects of these disciplines.
