I trained and practised as a solicitor in New South Wales, before being admitted as a solicitor to the Law Society of England and Wales in 2006. I joined Gordon Dadds in January 2014 and specialise in the administration of complex estates and trusts, as well as wills and inheritance planning, often involving multi-jurisdictional elements, which can be particularly relevant for sportspeople.

Outside of work you can find me cycling, or on muddy dog walks in the country.


What is your most interesting legal experience?

My most curious legal experience was organising the removal of goats from a farm. That was not something I ever expected to have to do as a lawyer!

What is your favourite aspect of work?

My favourite aspect of work is definitely the variety of interesting clients. Hearing their stories is fascinating, as they come from many different backgrounds and have diverse personalities.
