Experience and Expertise

Josh has been working as a Law Clerk, and subsequently as an admitted solicitor, for in excess of 7 years.  After being admitted as a solicitor, he went on to play a key role in the running of the Commercial and Litigation teams at a well regarded Brisbane law firm.  That experience in both litigious and commercial matters has given Josh a depth of experience in all manner of business transactions, as well as in the disputes and litigation that can occasionally arise when commercial matters go wrong.

 

Josh’s broad experience and knowledge has equipped him to assist clients to grow their businesses, and deal with problems that sometimes arise.  When handling disputes his focus is on resolving the matter quickly and inexpensively.  For commercial and business matters, his goal is always to keep the transaction on track without unnecessary complications and costs, while at the same time protecting the client’s interests.   

 

Josh has represented clients before the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts of Queensland as well as the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.  He has also represented clients before the Federal Court, Court of Appeal and High Court of Australia.

Professional Interests

Josh believes that the processes used to resolve a client’s dispute should be shaped by the need to resolve the matter as quickly and inexpensively as possible. This means that the advice Josh gives clients is commercially sensible and to the point.

 

Josh majored in Public Law during his Master’s degree. Feeling strongly about ensuring an even playing field between Governments and stakeholders, Josh is experienced in scrutinising official decision making and regulatory action. Josh is also highly experienced at commercial litigation, preferring to establish and maintain the upper hand in disputes to ensure that clients resolve their matters as soon as they are able so as to be able to get back to running their businesses.
