Alyce describes herself as a corporate problem solver. With experience at a top tier global law firm in Adelaide and Melbourne, and at the magic circle Slaughter and May in London, she brings a breadth of knowledge to her practice that helps her pre-empt, manage and solve complex issues for her clients.
This significant cross-border capability gives Alyce a global insight into transactions and an excellent grounding in all aspects of corporate law, but she has a particular interest in private and public M&A, corporate governance and energy and resource projects. She has acted for a number of ASX blue-chip and FTSE 250 listed companies, including in the mining, new energy and banking and finance sectors. She has also experienced the challenges and opportunities faced by in house counsel on a daily basis through a 6 month secondment to EnergyAustralia during a core corporate strategy transition period.
By acting on some of Australia’s and the UK’s highest profile transactions, Alyce has developed a particular strength in managing intricate legal and strategic issues. She acted for NBN Co in relation to the $11 billion renegotiation of its contracts with Telstra to implement its multi-technology mix NBN (one of the largest and most complex contractual negotiations in Australian history), and advised BHP in relation to its proposed expansion of the Olympic Dam copper, uranium, gold and silver mine in South Australia. She also has a grounding in private equity transactions, having acted on the £1billion sale of NewDay to a private equity consortium.
Whether it’s a joint venture, an acquisition or sale, an investment fund, a takeover or a general corporate strategy issue, Alyce can provide you with insightful and practical advice and help you get the deal done.
