about Gavin

Gavin’s clients value and respect his skills as a corporate lawyer. One client, a major Australian company, has gone through five changes of control transactions and every time they’ve called on him to act for them.

He is an experienced corporations and corporate regulatory lawyer highly skilled in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and governance, principally for ASX-listed companies.

“Clients want both speed and accuracy of advice. In the corporation’s regulatory environment, matters are often urgent and many years specialising in the area means I can give advice on the spot over the phone when it’s needed.”

Starting his career in litigation, Gavin has since specialised in commercial law, in particular regulated transactions and governance matters, dealing with the Corporations Act, ASX Listing Rules and Takeovers Panel Guidance. He deals regularly with ASX and ASIC personnel. He works with his clients on structuring the best possible deal and ensuring they comply with the relevant regulatory requirements. He is highly regarded in his field and valued by clients for his direct, no-nonsense approach to finding solutions to their problems and achieving their goals.

Gavin has a loyal client base that he has worked with for a long time; they know him well and he understands all aspects of their business.
