Isabel’s experience is in corporate and commercial law, including areas such as corporate restructuring, governance, contracts, disputes and insolvency.

We asked Isabel a few fun questions to help us get to know her
- Who inspires you?
My mum. She’s everything from a cattlewoman, to a teacher, to a chef, to a stock-hand, to an accountant, to a stockbroker, to a therapist, to a vet, to an artist, to a tractor driver, to a fencer. And she’s extremely adept at each.
- If you could be any animal which would you be?
A giant sea turtle. I wouldn’t mind giving living under the sea a crack, and they seem to get a good crack – about 150 years’ worth.
- Which individual living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with?
The Queen – but I’d want her hooked up to a lie detector to make things interesting.
- What is your secret talent?
I’m a fairly handy baker.
- What do you like most about working for M+E?
Parking’s a dream.
