A life-long learner, Sonya loves the law because it’s constantly evolving.
Driven by an interest in people and their businesses, Sonya enjoys working with her clients to understand them and what makes their businesses tick.
With both private practice and in-house experience, Sonya uses her experience and legal knowledge to help solve problems and untangle issues to achieve the best possible outcome. She works with her clients to record commercial arrangements in clear, user-friendly documents that meet her client’s objectives, ensure legal obligations are met, and risk is managed.
Because of past experience Sonya has a particular interest in the health and local government sectors and the interface of Tech, IP and Privacy law for the provision of services within a regulatory framework.
