I am a barrister at Francis Burt Chambers.

I accept briefs in commercial matters and complex and commercial criminal cases.

Proceeds of Crime and Criminal Property Confiscation

I have a particular interest and significant experience in proceeds of crime, criminal property confiscation, money laundering and anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing. My expertise in relation to asset protection is also readily applied to some taxation and family law matters.

Cuckoo Smurfing

A number of cases involving victims of cuckoo smurfing have been before the courts in Australia in recent times. I successfully argued the test case, Commissioner AFP v Ganesh Kalimuthu & Anor [2017] WASC 108 in favour of the victim. I am briefed in a number of similar matters across Australia and I am willing to take instructions on further matters in all jurisdictions.

About Me

More information about my background can be found on my profile page.

I am based in Perth, Western Australia and am available to advise nationally in my areas of expertise. I am willing to consider electronic briefs and I accept direct briefs from in-house counsel.
