I have completed a winter clerkship in the William Roberts class actions team in 2019 and then continued on as a law clerk in the general disputes and insurance team.

Since joining William Roberts Lawyers, I have gained experience in:

  • Preparing briefs to counsel;
  • Drafting correspondence in insurance and commercial litigation matters;
  • Drafting court documents;
  • Attending to hearing preparations;
  • Attending to legal research and updates.

Who I work with and what I do

More recently, I have assisted on and been involved in the following matters:

  • Assisting on a matter involving insurers of a large government entity and two multinational corporations;
  • A complex matter that included a claim for indemnity under a rental hire agreement with insurance clauses and underwritten by an insurance company;
  • Assisting in the consideration of the application of the Civil Liability (Third Party Claims Against Insurers) Act 2017 (NSW) on a matter in the Supreme Court of New South Wales; and
  • Assisting on class action investigations.

Where I studied

I have a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Communications at the University of Technology Sydney. I am currently completing my Practical Legal Training and anticipate being admitted in early 2021.

What I like to do

I enjoy travelling and went on a six-month study exchange in the Netherlands in 2018/2019, where I studied International Bachelor Communication and Media at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
