What the team is known for

Boutique-style practice tackling an impressive range of high-stakes mandates, often at state Supreme, Federal or High Court level, through the use of small, senior partner-led teams. Especially active on matters involving securities, insolvency or product liability issues, and experienced in the management of class actions. Widely acknowledged for well-developed expertise – acquired representing both public and private sector players – in the regulatory sphere, and further noted for its frequent representation of individual executives in both insolvency-related and criminal proceedings in superior state and Commonwealth Courts.

Notable practitioners

Andrew Christopher co-heads the practice and is particularly well known for his work on regulatory matters, where he regularly acts both for and against the ACCC. He is also active across a range of contractual, intellectual property and trade secrets disputes.

Practice co-head Reaymond McGuinness is renowned as an "excellent defender of excellent cases" whose record acting on behalf of individual executives in insolvency-related and regulatory cases commands particular respect. A client who describes him as "one of the smartest, shrewdest litigators I have ever dealt with," goes on to say: "If he says you have a problem, then you have a problem. Only a fool would ignore his advice, and if I needed a litigator to defend my life, I would pick him."
