Daniel is a client-focused commercial barrister with a broad range of experience. He specialises in insolvency, property, contractual and general commercial disputes.
Daniel has acted for numerous liquidators and bankruptcy trustees. He has appeared in all Victorian and Federal Courts, both at trial level and in numerous appeals. Another area of interest to him is criminal law at both trial and appellate level, especially in relation to white collar crime.
Daniel understands that for non-institutional clients, litigation is a difficult and stressful process. He is mindful of the need to ensure that clients are as comfortable with the process as possible.
In his Master of Laws, which he completed in 2004, Daniel focused on equity, contractual remedies, professional indemnity insurance and minority shareholders’ remedies.
Daniel has long provided advice at community legal centres and on a pro bono basis. He believes that those who have benefited from the law have the obligation to return that benefit to the community. To that end, he is always prepared to consider requests from solicitors to act on a pro bono basis in appropriate matters.
Type of Practice
Trial and appellate advocacy, pleadings and opinion work, principally in the Supreme Court, County Court and bankruptcy courts. Daniel has often appeared as junior counsel.
