A word from Meghan: 

The most fulfilling part of my role is assisting clients in resolving their problem in a logical, commercial and creative way to reach the best possible outcome for them. This is achieved by listening to my clients and understanding their needs to develop the right strategies.

I enjoy developing a relationship with my clients while resolving their matter and being someone they can trust and depend on to approach a dispute objectively, commercially and with an honest and practical strategy.

The dividend payments were to be restored to the company for payment of debts to its creditors. The proceedings also involved an application for a stay of proceedings and successfully obtaining a freezing order.

  • Successfully represented an owners corporation in a Court of Appeal matter involving a statutory warranty breach under the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) with respect to combustible cladding.
