Col­in Skelton

Consultant
Com­mer­cial, Lit­i­ga­tion, Estate Plan­ning

I have expe­ri­ence in Com­mer­cial Lit­i­ga­tion hav­ing prac­ticed in that area of law since 1982

I main­tain a prac­ti­ca­ble and com­mon-sense approach to all liti­gious mat­ters and embrace the con­cept of ADR with a view to a com­mer­cial res­o­lu­tion of dis­putes. I have expe­ri­ence in all Court juris­dic­tions should the need arise to litigate. 

I con­tin­ue to advise in the areas of Fam­i­ly Law prop­er­ty dis­putes and also act in Estate mat­ters includ­ing Estate Plan­ning, Wills, Admin­is­tra­tion and Estate Litigation.

My focus at all times is on client needs and inter­ests and to clear­ly iden­ti­fy­ing and deal with the real issues at an ear­ly stage of any dispute.

Expe­ri­ence

My clients vary from indi­vid­u­als and small busi­ness­es to pub­lic and pri­vate com­pa­nies. I have act­ed in many types of mat­ters includ­ing Con­trac­tu­al, Prop­er­ty, Build­ing and Con­struc­tion and Indus­tri­al dis­putes, Com­pe­ti­tion and Con­sumer Law and Debt Recov­ery. I con­duct mat­ters in the Local, Dis­trict and Supreme Courts of New South Wales.
