I joined Francis Burt Chambers as a barrister in 2014, after graduating from the University of Western Australia in 2002.
Immediately prior to being called to the bar I was inaugural Deputy Counsel for the Australian Federal Police, with responsibility for litigation under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (Cth) in Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
I was a Principal Federal Prosecutor for the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. First, in Commercial Prosecutions, where I was case officer for ASIC’s first share warehousing prosecution, and then managing the Criminal Assets branch in Western Australia. I worked with and juniored a number of eminent senior counsel, some of whom have since been appointed to the bench, including to the High Court.
Between 2002 and 2006 I practiced in commercial litigation including with a boutique corporate insolvency firm.
