I am a commercial technology lawyer representing clients ranging from early-stage technology startups to incumbent TMT enterprises. I started my career, in Dublin, Ireland, as a corporate lawyer advising TMT clients and discovered that my passion lay in helping technology businesses grow, innovate and become leaders in their field.

My focus now is twofold: advising on innovative ICT transactions and complex digital procurements and advising on the data protection, privacy and security challenges that all organizations face. Having spent a number of years working in London, I moved with my family to become part of the DLA Piper family in Sydney; and my desire in supporting innovative businesses has followed me across the water.

I reside in sunny Sydney with my husband and our three-year-old daughter. The Australian climate, culture and good nature is well matched by our Irish humour and wit, and we have found here a vibrant city that is now home. I am passionate about meeting new people, sharing new experiences and learning new things. Maybe this is why I am drawn to working with entrepreneurial, innovative and disruptive businesses − they embrace my love for change.
