I have consistently been ranked by independent publications as one of the leading lawyers in New South Wales in the areas of commercial litigation and insolvency. My practice also involves undertaking commercial work and banking and finance work for various financial institutions. I am a determined individual and I aim to achieve the best commercial results for my clients.
I have practiced as a Commercial Litigation Lawyer for over 30 years with a particular emphasis on commercial disputes and insolvency matters. I have acted in hundreds of public examinations, without Counsel, for liquidators, receivers and bankruptcy trustees.
I was one of the first lawyers appointed to the State and National Committees of Insolvency Practitioners Association of Australia (now known as ARITA) and my cases are regularly reported in various legal publications. I served on the Corporations List Committee of the Supreme Court of NSW for a number of years. In December 2020, I obtained three successful judgement in the Supreme Court of New South Wales, of which all cases were reported. I recently acted successfully for parties in the High Court of Australia. I have successfully been involved in many high-profile cases.
I have been involved in giving advice in thousands of insolvency administration and conducted litigation in most states of Australia. Many of my cases are insolvency administrations such as Alan Bond and more recently the missing woman case of Melissa Caddick which have been high profile and involved complex legal issues. I have acted for many lawyers and accountants in partnership and shareholder disputes. I have also successfully acted on behalf of various professionals including accountants, lawyers and sports persons in disciplinary proceedings.
