My area of interest the Bar is advocacy, arbitration, mediation.

I have engaged in mediation and arbitration both as mediator, arbitrator or as advocate for parties engaged in those processes since my admission to the Bar in 1978.

My experience in mediation ranges over a wide variety of matters including commercial, environmental, compulsory land acquisition and compensation, building and construction, tort claims, wills and estate administration, family law property issues and similar.

I was the appointed arbitrator in a number of commercial arbitrations under the New South Wales and the Victorian Commercial Arbitration Acts, where my aim was to ensure that the parties engaged in a process to achieve just, quick, efficient and cost effective resolution of disputes

The Land and Environment Court of New South Wales successfully implements its statutory conciliation, arbitration and mediation scheme and I have participated in numerous matters under s34 of its legislation in the mediation of development and environmental, and mining/resources disputes..

My interests in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) flow from the recognition that CSR should be understood, known to and implemented as an important and lawful consideration by corporations and by States whose policies should include principles of CSR as an important consideration in granting consents, leases, licenses, permits or property rights for the exploitation of resources and in respect of other commercial/ industrial undertakings. A firm understanding of domestic and international environmental law and issues is crucial for the purpose of a responsible and meaningful recognition of corporate social responsibility and the potential impingement on recognized human rights.

My interest in Corporate Governance flows from the requirement of corporate good governance for the purpose of the implementation of responsible corporate policy and strategy.

I was retained for the purpose of reporting and advising on corporate governance and oversight of 2 governmental and semi-governmental authorities in New South Wales Australia in respect of New South Wales’ water resources, their assessment under legislation, exploitation, protection and distribution.

I waa a member of the team of Risk Edge Pty Limited giving legal oversight in the preparation of a Basin Plan Template for water resources for implementation of the Murray Darling Basin Plan.

I am presently retained to advise foreign investors and appear in respect of land and water access rights under the Mining Act 1992 for of a gold mine in far west New South Wales.

I have been an advocate in hundreds of cases concerning planning, development and environmental law, particularly in the Land and Environment Court of New South Wales, including the judicial review of administrative decisions. I am familiar with the formulation, implementation and application of environmental law and policy, both domestically and internationally.

I recognize and understand principles of environmentally sustainable development.

I am an occasional lecturer in mediation skills and theory and arbitration, including international commercial arbitration.
