"Delivering accurate, responsive and practical advice is my guiding principle. Legal advice must be not only technically correct, it must also be useful."

Daniel assists clients who are seeking to establish, acquire, finance, restructure or divest businesses and investments in Australia. He advises mature investors and companies, as well as start-up businesses and those embarking on a period of expansion or change.

His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, financial services regulation, funds management and debt financing. Daniel brings the experience of working in private legal practice, as an in-house counsel and as an investment banker. This gives him insight into the commercial drivers and practical considerations driving businesses and transactions, and how the most practical and commercially focused advice can make a very real difference.

Daniel’s clients, many of whom are of long standing, appreciate that he invests time to understand their overall goals and objectives. They value his ability to offer practical options to help them prioritise and achieve their desired outcome.

Anacacia Capital — acted for Anacacia Capital, Australia’s leading private equity firm focusing on small-medium enterprises, on its investments in LEDified Lighting Group, Pump Haircare and Force Fire Group, as well as bolt-on acquisitions for its portfolio companies. Anacacia Capital’s approach to acquisitions involves building long-term partnerships with portfolio companies, founders and management. That requires their legal advisers to bring a collaborative approach to documenting the relationships while ensuring its investors’ interests are properly protected.
