During this time, Emma has established a reputation for her professional approach and dedication to understanding her clients’ needs.
In 2012 Emma joined as a Director and established Locale Consulting as an incorporated legal practice.

Emma has undertaken probity reviews and can assist with resolving workplace conflicts or disputes.
Previously, Emma held a senior manager position at a large coastal and regional council (being Shoalhaven City Council) where she successfully established an in- house legal area to service council’s legal needs and managed the records and information areas. At the City of Sydney, Emma provided legal advice on a range of planning and contractual matters. She has extensive experience on a range of local government and planning matters which typically occur in regional areas, and is experienced in all aspects of procurement including drafting contract documents, advising on tendering issues and contract management.
