I apply a strategic, commercial and efficient approach to the litigated matters I run on behalf of my clients. Keeping clients out of court and focussed on business is my priority.

I act for clients in contentious matters in a wide range of sectors including real estate, mining, aged care, pharmaceutical, capital markets and financial services, among others. For the most part, my practice involves high stakes litigation in the superior state and federal courts, however, I also assist clients by providing pre-litigation advice with a view to solving problems commercially to avoid the need to go to court. With extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution procedures, I am regularly commended by my clients for my strong negotiation skills and commercial nous. I pride himself on my ability to settle complex disputes without the need to incur disproportionate or uncommercial costs where a favourable outcome can be achieved.

My experience includes representing clients in contract disputes, fraud matters, application for judicial advice, PPSR-related applications, contests between shareholders including oppression suits, directors’ duties, securities law, strata and commercial property disputes, compulsory acquisitions, trademark disputes, defamation, white collar crime, ASIC investigations, trust matters and insolvency/bankruptcy disputes.
