Representing the Wagonga Local Aboriginal Land Council in their Federal Court native title proceedings. I also worked in 2019 on major international cases in the commercial and public international law area including in Paris, London and Singapore. The most significant international case was either an investment arbitration case involving the Republic of Latvia in Paris where I assist Honourable James Spigelman AC, or the international commercial arbitration in London.
