Having commenced my legal career in 2008 at Slater and Gordon, I am currently a senior member of the Class Actions team.
I lead a team with demonstrated expertise litigating both common law personal injury claims and complex commercial cases. This team is currently acting for shareholders in a class action brought against failed education provider, Vocation Limited, and PricewaterhouseCoopers as well as investigating potential litigation arising from alleged mis-selling of consumer credit card insurance by Australian banks.
During my time at Slater and Gordon I have worked on numerous high-profile cases which have secured hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients and group members, including the Manus Island class action and the Centro shareholder class action which was the largest shareholder class action settlement in Australian history. Other class actions of note I have worked on include shareholder class actions against GPT, Newcrest and Billabong.
Investigating and commencing new class actions is a key component of my role, which has enabled Slater and Gordon to begin various proceedings, including against Deloitte in relation to the collapse of listed building services company Hastie Group Limited.
My work at Slater and Gordon reflects my commitment to the importance of providing access to justice for all and holding the powerful to account. To this end, beyond my work with the class action team, I also have a significant pro bono practice and have acted in individual personal injury and commercial cases on both a No Win No Fee and fee-for-service basis.
