Anna’s prior experiences encompass working across a number of major jurisdictions in Australia, advising on all aspects of property transactions from due diligence investigations, development, acquisitions and disposals to ongoing management, leasing and licensing of real estate assets.

Throughout her career Anna enjoyed working with and building strong connections with participants from diverse backgrounds, such as charities, indigenous businesses and not-for-profit organisations.  

In a previous role as an in-house counsel, Anna assisted clients with housing development, installation of infrastructure facilities, redevelopment of real estate, site consolidation and subdivision and other property related projects (including joint ventures with government departments and agencies).
