Prior to becoming an academic, she spent many years working as a commercial lawyer, as in-house counsel and in law firm knowledge management, in Sydney and London, for Blake Dawson (now Ashurst), AMP, Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills) and SJ Berwin (later King & Wood Mallesons). Her work in practice primarily focused on commercial contracts in the area of technology acquisition and licensing, intellectual property, and communications. Her first professional job was as an information consultant for Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
