Hayley is a graduate from the University of Canterbury (NZ), having graduated with a degree in Arts in 2012 (double major in History and Classics).

Hayley joined Coulson Legal in May 2012 and since that time has been immersed exclusively in the area of costs, drawing bills of costs, notices of objections, attending taxation and costs hearings, and assisting with special costs and security for costs applications. Under the supervision of Maria-Luisa, Hayley is responsible for the drafting of bills of costs and notices of objections, with a special interest in large Federal Court and Supreme Court litigation matters.

Hayley is developing her interest in the area of criminal law costs, in particular, is undertaking a review of the avenues available for Defendants that have been successfully acquitted. In addition, Hayley is also involved in the development of Coulson Legal’s extensive suite of costs agreement precedents. With Coulson Legal’s emphasis towards alternative dispute resolution, Hayley works with Maria-Luisa in relation to undertaking global assessments of costs, aimed at resolving costs disputes without recourse to taxation.

When not considering costs, Hayley enjoys trail running, hiking, 4WDing and mountain biking. From time to time, Hayley competes in running events with a team from Coulson Legal.
