For over 15 years, I have successfully acted in commercial litigation of a complex nature on behalf of leading landlords, property investment groups and syndicates, property developers, the NSW Government and statutory corporations, tenants, construction and building product companies, banks and private net worth individuals. I am particularly experienced at advising clients in relation to litigation strategy, contract interpretation and risk mitigation.
I act for landlords in the Sydney CBD in relation to all aspects of commercial and retail leasing disputes. I regularly appear on behalf of landlords and developers in the Supreme Court of NSW, Real Property List, and on behalf of landlords in the Retail Leases Division of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. I have a particular interest in advising landlords in relation to the large scale redevelopment of CBD and regional assets and the issues which commonly arise in the context of refurbishment, demolition and relocation. I advise on a broad range of property disputes and commercial and retail leasing disputes. This frequently includes the giving of advice in relation to issues of contract interpretation and the operation and application of the Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW), including the impact of the amendments to the Act. My team and I provide daily advice to asset and centre managers in relation to tenancy management issues, including refurbishment, relocation and demolition, rent review disputes, termination and make good disputes, tenants in administration, and a large scale portfolio of debt recovery work.
I also act for developers in connection with disputes concerning the performance of contracts for the sale of land, put and call option disputes, damages claims, vendor disclosure and misleading and deceptive conduct. I have a particular interest advising clients in relation to deposit retention structures and vendor disclosure obligations.
Over the past 15 years, I have a proven track record of continuously achieving successful outcomes for clients in litigation and through focused settlement strategy, including:
