How can I help you?
I am the firm’s most experienced family lawyer with over 35 years dispute resolution experience across the range of matrimonial and civil litigation. I focus on the resolution of financial and property claims upon relationship breakdown particularly in farming, business and professional families where extensive business knowledge is aligned with forensic legal expertise. The same expertise is brought to Inheritance Act and Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act claims.
I am also experienced in providing advice and guidance on professional matters. Having been the firm’s Managing Partner for many years prior to becoming Senior Partner and Group Chairman, I am able to bring together business and dispute resolution expertise.
As Chair of the Risk Committee of the group I am experienced in the management of business risk and in guiding others on professional risk and indemnity issues.
I take great pride in helping lead the firm’s progressive growth and development as a forward thinking professional services provider. For other professionals and business organisations I can provide independent chairmanship or consultancy.
