  • advice on lease options

    Christian acted for a lessee in a case where the landlord denied the extension on a term of lease under an option where the construction of the provisions under the lease were in dispute. Christian commenced proceedings in the Supreme Court for declaratory orders that the option was validly exercised. The lease was extended and prevailed in favor of the commercial perseverance of his client.

  • liquidator’s claims

    Christian acted for a company director being pursued by a liquidator in a claim under the Corporations Act. Christian successfully challenged the validity of the claim and the assignment thereof and resolved the matter in the interest of his client.

  • misrepresentation and deceit

Christian filed proceedings in the Supreme Court and carefully obtained conclusive evidence to spearhead the matter to resolution by settlement and avoiding trial for his client.
