Adam Bannister
Partner, Adelaide
I am an accomplished litigator with almost three decades of experience and a dedication to solving complex corporate and commercial disputes.

My practice is broad, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to act for public and private clients across a diverse range of industries – including agriculture, construction, health, professional services, property and retail.

I pride myself on my ability to offer clients a clear assessment of their position, all available options, and how to best achieve timely, pragmatic and cost-effective solutions. My strategic advice is always designed to achieve optimal commercial outcomes.

Until 2021 I was the office managing partner of the Adelaide office.
