I have known Laina since 1998 when we worked together at Minter Ellison. As a solicitor, Laina always produced first rate, focused and on point, work. Since Laina went to the Bar in 2004 I have briefed her in a wide range of litigious matters. Laina has a very sound, well thought through approach to litigation: her tactical judgments are good and she is a skilled cross examiner. She has been instrumental in achieving many good outcomes for parties I have been acting for. I have also recommended Laina to others who have invariably reported that they have been very pleased with the work she has done for them. I have great confidence in Laina’s abilities and I am sure she will continue to do well.
