Adam Bak


modern lawyer
Adam joined the firm in 2006.  Since then Adam has established himself as one of our leading litigation lawyers and has run some of the firm’s biggest cases, in both parenting and property matters. He became a director of the firm in 2013. While he now tries to help his clients reach agreement wherever possible he still regularly appears in Court and is one of our best advocates.

Adam has a particular interest and expertise in cases involving businesses, corporate structures and valuation issues. He represents business owners and their spouses and knows all the strategies for both sides.  He understands balance sheets and complex financial documents as well as the commercial realities of running a business. Adam also runs a busy and successful parenting practice and has run a number of high conflict cases involving allegations of abuse of children, and he has been invited to present papers on how to manage such allegations at national family law conferences.  Adam has also successfully run cases for parents trying to relocate with children and parents trying to oppose relocations.

Adam also runs estate litigation matters, and brings all his litigation and settlement experience to those cases.

Adam’s clients say that he is particularly good at formulating a tailored strategy that meets their interests and works for them. He is well regarded by both his peers and Judges, but most importantly by his clients.
