A senior lawyer in the Dispute Resolution & Insolvency and Commercial teams, Holly’s legal practice is best described as “hands on” and “down-to-earth”. Since hailing from the sandy beaches of Newcastle NSW, Holly has worked exclusively in boutique commercial law firms in Sydney before joining FCW Lawyers (including 6+ years with Ledlin Lawyers who merged with FCW Lawyers in 2023).
Dispute Resolution and Commercial Law
No two clients are the same when you’re working with Holly. Holly helps the people in business of all sizes and industry sectors to navigate the legal landscape and commercial challenges that arise throughout the business lifecycle. This includes implementing contracts, collections process and procedure, the Personal Property Securities Act regime, debt recovery, commercial disputes and customer insolvency.
A natural problem solver and outcome-focussed lawyer, Holly is driven to negotiate settlements that protect her client’s commercial interests and keep them out of Court wherever possible. But if a more practical and cost-effective outcome can’t be achieved first, Holly is adept at managing the litigation process across a broad range of commercial disputes and insolvency.
With expertise in the complexities of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (PPSA), Holly helps her clients to navigate the PPSA scheme and customer insolvency by ensuring that security interests are protected in commercial contracts and PPSR registrations are perfected.
With a keen interest in personal development and the process of improvement, Holly is passionate about using law as a tool to drive business success. Eager to gain an solid understanding of her clients’ specific goals and unique business, Holly enjoys partnering with her clients to increase legal protection, improve operations, reduce financial risk and develop better customer relationships.
Holly is a clear and confident communicator who looks to ‘cut through’ legal technicalities and facilitate costs transparency. She (aims to be) a gifted writer who can carefully distinguish when plain-English is best, or when traditional legal drafting is needed. She provides her clients direct and concise advice so that they can understand exactly what their legal position is, their options, steps needed to achieve a desired outcome, and how much it’s all going to cost.
