Capability: My passion is to help develop and empower strong in-house legal teams, who partner with their organisation to provide ‘can-do’ solutions that add real value. I have 20 years of legal experience in government and private practice roles, leading legal, policy and technical teams. As former General Counsel on the EQC Executive Team, I understand the importance of supporting an organisation through periods of intense change and crisis management. I have extensive experience in public & Crown Entity law, including Inquiries; litigation strategy; contracting & procurement; insurance and construction law. I have also led the development of new regulatory schemes and the overhaul of legislation in the building and local government sectors.
