The lawyer your business sometimes needs

Are you “winging it” when it comes to managing legal risk in your business?

Do you need a part time in-house counsel who can develop a deep understanding of your business?


How I help


I provide commercially useful, pragmatic and plain-English legal advice that can help you manage risk and make better business decisions.

I can work on-demand, on a part-time contract or on a retainer basis, at a scale and price that works for you. My pricing packages include both fixed fee and real-time costing options.

I’ve worked with a variety of clients and have a reputation for being easy to work with and adding value to business processes and decisions. I really do enjoy getting to know people and their business, and helping them manage the legal issues.


What I do

I’m a generalist in-house counsel, which means I handle a broad range of day-to-day legal issues, and can recognise when specialist legal advice is necessary (and coordinate that advice).

Here are some of the things I help clients with:

  • Commercial contracts: drafting, reviewing, negotiating and interpreting

  • Reviewing tender documentation and commercial pitches

  • Drafting correspondence to, or attending meetings with clients, suppliers and third parties where legal issues are involved

  • Providing a “legal sounding board” for people across your business on day-to-day legal issues

  • Reviewing new product and service offerings

  • Acting as legal project manager, coordinating work with your company’s other consultants or advisers, and reporting back to management

  • Preparing and reviewing regulatory applications, including licence applications

  • Advising on regulatory requirements and guidance applicable to your entity (e.g. ASIC, APRA)

  • Re-drafting product/client terms and conditions in plain English

  • Drafting/reviewing corporate policies and procedures



Leigh’s ability to accelerate the execution and closure on the matters I partnered her with is attributed to not only her outstanding legal skills but also her very strong commercial acumen which contributed immensely to the success of the business.

Leigh is exceptional and one of the most efficient in-house counsels that I have ever worked with, who always strives for excellence.
