Modern Lawyer

Tim has practiced exclusively in Family Law since 2008.

Tim has deep expertise in matters involving high net-worth and complex corporate and trust structures. He has run and resolved some of the largest dollar-value Family Law litigation in Australia.

Tim is friendly and approachable, but does not entertain nonsense. He brings a strategic and commercial approach to Family Law matters, and focusses on reaching the client’s desired outcome in the most efficient, tax-sensitive, and cost-effective way possible. He is highly skilled in “cutting through the noise” and prioritising the most important aspects of a matter.

Tim’s commercial approach and experience in complex property matters means he is often engaged to advise third parties to a Family Law dispute, such as business partners or companies which co-own assets that are the subject of a Family Law claim.

Tim is also a recognised expert in pre-nuptial Financial Agreements and complex Child Support Agreements. He is routinely engaged to draft or advise on complex Financial Agreements for large families seeking to protect inter-generational wealth from future Family law claims, and is regularly invited to present to industry bodies on the technical intricacies of Financial Agreements generally.

Tim also brings his friendly and pragmatic approach to parenting cases and is adept at navigating the complexities of those matters. He takes a particular interest in parenting matters which don’t fit the traditional “nuclear family” paradigm.

Tim is an Accredited Specialist in Family Law and a member of the Law Council of Australia and the Law Institute of Victoria.
