I'm passionate about blockchain projects which deliver an evolution towards decentralisation. With my past programming experience and interest in crypto-economics, I provide clients a valuable advantage in dealing with the legal issues around cryptocurrency and blockchain. I have a wealth of experience in commercial negotiations, litigation, construction, strata and insolvency. I leverage my past experience as a former software developer and my international legal experience gained working for boutique and national law firms in both Australia and Canada.

I'm advisor to a number of Australian based cryptocurrency businesses with a track record of success. I regularly write on blockchain and have presented Australia wide and internationally on legal issues in blockchain.

Specialities: Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Commercial Contracts, Information Technology, Shareholder Agreements, Construction Contracts, Insolvency, Contract negotiation and drafting, Security for Payment act claims, Commercial Litigation, Contract Disputes, Strata Law, Mediation and Negotiations, and Business Advisory.
