Edward was awarded the Chief Justice’s prize for best performed reader at the 2014 WA Bar Association’s Bar Readers’ Course, as well as the 2014 Award for equal top performance in the Essential Trial Advocacy Course.

Edward has a particular interest in statutory causes of action, and their defence, and more broadly in statutory interpretation generally. Edward has argued a number of novel points of statutory interpretation and recently presented a paper entitled “Statutory Interpretation – Practical Problem Solving.”
Criminal Property Confiscations and Proceeds of Crime Expertise
Edward is recognised as an expert in relation to advice and litigation under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (Cth) and the Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000 (WA).
A career highlight was receiving a United States Attorney Award from the United States Ambassador to Australia. The award was conferred for Edward’s management of a significant global asset forfeiture case on behalf of the Australian government in which USD 24 million was confiscated.
