Areas of Expertise

“We balance the law with our clients’ commercial realities. We understand our clients’ priorities and provide practical and timely advice.”

As a Senior Associate in our Banking and Finance team, Lisa works mainly in general banking, finance, insolvency and reconstruction matters. There’s no ‘off the shelf’ solution for any of Lisa’s clients. She works to understand each client’s issues and commercial objectives, identify the best course of action and provide precise, concise and commercially-focused advice.

Lisa is experienced in complex litigation, preparing advice and analysing a large range of commercial and corporate transactions. She also has expertise in major dispute resolution and has acted in debt recovery and securities enforcement for major Australian banks, as well as regional and other lenders. Lisa has assisted in large insolvency administrations for financiers and insolvency practitioners and has been involved in substantial and complex fraud investigations, proceedings against company officers and professional negligence claims.

Lisa’s clients know that she has a good understanding not only of the law, but also their commercial realities. She’s developed long standing relationships with many clients who value her outcome-driven, practical and personable approach.

With qualifications in commerce, Lisa previously worked for a chartered accounting firm in the areas of insolvency and reconstruction. This complementary industry experience makes her a great asset to the Finlaysons team.
