I am an environmental law adviser and advocate. My current practice focuses on infrastructure projects and ESG


I am an environmental lawyer. I started having an interest in this area in 2005, and have not looked back since. I worked initially in Sydney, Australia, and since 2019 in Wellington, New Zealand.
The work that I do allows me to understand the points of view of many entities impacted by environmental laws and regulations. From NGOs fighting the good or not so good fight, to government agencies and local authorities who have a statutory mandate to focus on, to businesses who want to continue to develop their capabilities.
Helping them resolve their challenges gives me a sense that I make a difference at the local, regional and global level.
