Highly experienced commercial litigator across a range of industries



I fix my fees wherever possible, based on the value you receive



I keep you informed every step of the way


Litigation is risky, costly and time-consuming. It also tends to destroy personal and commercial relationships. That’s why I don’t recommend commencing litigation unless there is no real alternative. If you are involved in litigation I will vigorously advance or defend your interests. But I will always keep an open mind about resolving your matter out of Court, where it is possible and in your interests to do so.

I provide straightforward, strategic, responsive and fixed-fee legal services.  This involves:
  • getting on top of the facts;
  • assessing your legal position;
  • advising where you stand, legally;
  • understanding your objectives and appetite for risk, cost and time;
  • giving you realistic options, strategies and fee-estimates for resolving the dispute, together with my recommendation;
  • implementing your preferred option/ strategy;
  • re-evaluating the above as your matter progresses, and making adjustments as required.

My former business partner and I had an issue arising from the collapse of our business. Greg helped us to quickly move, with limited emotion, to an acceptable resolution. I would certainly recommend Greg as corporate mediator in a similar situation.
