Jones brings over two decades of experience in leveraged, acquisition, and project finance, structured asset finance, and corporate finance. She is an expert in handling bilateral and syndicated loan transactions across tax-driven finance arrangements, debt restructuring, asset-backed and inventory facilities.

She has been admitted as a solicitor of the NSW Supreme Court and the High Court. She has also been admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the New Zealand High Court.

While part of G+T, Jones helped to advise Telstra on funding the US$1.6bn acquisition of Digicel Pacific and guided a syndicate of lenders in financing the $2.35bn acquisition of One Rail Australia by Aurizon. Before joining G+T in 2013, she was with Freshfields in London for seven years.

She also gained in-house experience through secondments at The Royal Bank of Scotland plc, Barclays Capital, GE Money, and GE Commercial Finance.
