Australia Lead NRF Transform | Head of Legal Project Management
I joined Norton Rose Fulbright Australia (NRFA) in August 2016 as a Legal Project Manager for the Disputes Team. As the demand for project management services grew across all legal teams, this role evolved and I am now the Head of Legal Project Management for Australia. I have also previously managed the Australian Applied Legal Technology (ALT) team, NRFA’s in-house e-discovery and document management team.
I work closely with NRFA’s legal, ALT, pricing, document automation and business development teams to ensure matters are appropriately and efficiently resourced, processes are streamlined, fees are managed and the use of technology is maximised to increase efficiencies.
In 2018, I joined the global Transform team and this has become one of the most rewarding parts of my job. Finding new and innovative ways to deliver our services and embracing a legal operations approach to client problems is an exciting new development and a natural progression of legal project management. I’m constantly learning new things about what the firm (and the market) is doing globally in the legal operations, legal tech and innovation space and the challenge for me is to further develop these offerings at NRFA and promote them to NRFA’s clients.
I’m a (very amateur) tap dancer and regularly appear in theatre productions, and I sit on the Board of Directors of a Circus.
Prior to joining NRFA, I was a Senior Associate in the litigation team at a major global law firm having worked there for around 12 years. In addition to managing a busy litigation practice, I was also part of the team that designed and rolled out that firm’s LPM program. Before that, I was a project manager in the construction industry for around 7 years.
Best part of the job
