‘Helping clients achieve their goals with practical and commercial legal advice. I love helping my clients and seeing them succeed.’


  • I work with:
    I’m currently doing a lot of work with clients in financial services, funds management, fintech, blockchain and cryptocurrency. This includes both startups and established companies.
  • Trends in my area:
    there is a lot of exciting stuff happening in the FinTech and blockchain spaces. These areas are primed for significant growth and opportunity.
  • I predict the next big thing will be:
    with the introduction of the Consumer Data Right, I think we will see significant growth in the Fintech space. I also think the way of the future will include the tokenisation of all securities. I’m also currently working on a project that will be a crowd funded security token (STO) issuance platform.
  • My proudest achievement:
    personally it would have to be having my three daughters. Professionally, definitely making partner at Hall & Wilcox!
  • Outside work, you'll find me:
    I love spending time with my family, including my three young beautiful daughters, aged three, five and eight. I also like attending meetups in person, although that has been hard to do recently. I especially enjoy blockchain, investor, fintech and start-up focused meetups. I also enjoy silver collecting and refining.
  • If I wasn't a lawyer, I would be:
    I’d love to have been a chef or own a construction company.
