Foudoulis focuses on commercial property matters. She has tackled issues involving commercial and retail leasing, property developments, and sales and acquisitions.

Her clients include listed and unlisted property funds and corporations, national retailers and developers, shopping centre owners, state government departments, statutory corporations and private investors.
