She has experience in all stages of litigation, from drafting initial statements of case to appearing at interlocutory hearings (including, for example, applications for relief from sanctions, security for costs and injunctive relief), trials and appeals.
Lisa has recently been appointed Junior Counsel to the Crown by the Attorney General (Regional Panel B).
