Nuala accepts briefs in all areas of commercial law, but has special expertise in complex and high–value engineering and construction disputes. She regularly appears in the Court of Appeal New South Wales (led), the Federal Court of Australia, the Supreme Court of New South Wales, and in private arbitrations and in mediations.

Before coming to the bar in 2010, Nuala practiced as a solicitor working for Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now, King & Wood Mallesons) in Sydney and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London. She is recognised as one of Australia’s best lawyers in the areas of “Construction and Infrastructure” (Best Lawyers Australia, 2017 – 2013) and “Litigation” (Best Lawyers Australia, 2017 – 2016) and rated as “pre–eminent” in the area of “Construction Law” in Australia (Doyles Guide, 2017 – 2016). She was named “Junior Counsel of the Year, Australia” in 2013 by Lawyers Weekly, Australia.
