Euon Williams
Partner, Brisbane
I specialise in commercial property law, with a particular focus on capital transactions (both acquisitions and disposals) and complex leasing transactions across all real property asset classes. I also regularly advise on the real property aspects of major resources and infrastructure projects, pipeline developments and renewable energy projects.

I advise a diverse range of clients, including listed Australian REITs, listed property developers, financial institutions, resource companies, governments and high-net worth individuals.

Known for my diligent yet pragmatic approach and dedication, I take an active interest in understanding my client's strategic and commercial objectives in each transaction in order to give tailored and practical advice they can trust.
