Anne is a lecturer at the QUT Faculty of Law. Admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland, Anne has practised in commercial property, finance and small business advisory. Anne was awarded her LLM in 2003 and is currently undertaking a PhD in corporate governance and insolvency. Anne’s PhD thesis focuses on the behaviour of micro, small and medium enterprise when faced with a solvency crisis. A major concern in this area is the adequacy and efficiency of existing legal and regulatory frameworks to deal with exploitation of limited liability and the corporate form to the detriment of creditors. Anne’s research engages with economic theory to explore how these frameworks accommodate and encourage entrepreneurship, access to finance and good corporate governance.

Anne teaches corporate law, insolvency, international sales law and international commercial arbitration in the Law School’s postgraduate and undergraduate programs. Anne has been awarded a Law Faculty Teaching Excellence Award in recognition of her teaching. Anne has a keen interest in advocacy and dispute resolution and plays an active role in the Law School’s mooting program, coaching QUT Law’s team in the Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot held each year in Vienna.
