I have been a member of Slater and Gordon’s Class Actions team since 2010. Throughout my time working within this group I have developed significant experience working with high-profile and complex litigation, and have played key roles in the design and implementation of many of the intricate logistical processes and settlement distribution schemes involved in class action litigation.
I have worked on most of Slater and Gordon’s securities class actions in my time with the firm, including the claims against Centro, Nufarm, GPT, Billabong and Newcrest. I have also been part of the teams pursuing breach of trustee duties class actions against trustees of Provident Capital Limited, Australian Capital Reserve, and Fincorp.
Other significant cases I have been involved in include the Manus Island class action, the Australian Vioxx litigation, the Croydon Day Surgery class action, and the Fairbridge Farm School class action in New South Wales.
In addition to my class action work, I have been involved in numerous pieces of complex commercial litigation and other projects, such as ‘waffle slab’ heave claims against Metricon, negligence and nuisance claims in relation to GM Canola crops, and the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.
I have been proud to use my significant experience and technical skills to help conduct novel and important pieces of litigation at Slater and Gordon in as efficient and economical a fashion as possible, helping to assist group members who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to seek redress for their losses, and ensuring we produce the best returns for claimants possible.
