about Greg

Greg is known for being very commercial in his approach and often finds he is able to highlight solutions to his clients they may not have considered themselves.

Greg’s clients include a range of businesses and high net-worth individuals. He advises them on business structuring and succession, asset financing and estate planning. He is highly respected amongst his peers and loyal client base, some of whom he has worked with for more than 30 years.

Greg previously owned his own legal practice. He chose to merge with Macpherson Kelley in 2008, giving his clients access to a network of national lawyers he knows he can trust.

“When I first set up my business I worked hard to develop relationships with local businesses and other professionals. I have kept those relationships the whole way. This enabled me to understand their business; know when there are issues and know how to solve them.”

recent experience

  • inter-generational business transfer

    Greg was engaged by a prominent family to develop a succession plan for the transfer of control of the family business and assets to the next generation. This required an understanding of the family dynamics, the need to protect the wealth from other possible claimants and a diverse range of inter-linking commercial aspects including protective trusts, superannuation, business structuring, tax and stamp duty implications.

  • settlement of partnership dispute

    When business partners have a falling out, the consequences can be very significant. Greg was engaged to assist in achieving a settlement that would be acceptable to all parties involved. This involved a need to understand and tactfully deal with both the commercial and the personal drivers behind the dispute that had been simmering for years. It also required a good knowledge of the structures and related contractual and business succession aspects. An amicable settlement was achieved despite the initial doubts of all concerned.
