Matt joined Mellor Olsson in 2011 after gaining experience at another inner city law firm.
He has acted for a range of clients, from individuals to corporate entities, providing advice in the areas of commercial law, property law, business succession, Wills and deceased estates. He has experience in numerous commercial, building and construction litigation matters.
Matt has particular expertise in working with businesses of all sizes from a range of industries across the entire spectrum of business advisory issues. This includes advising on issues such as legal structures and restructures, commercial documentation and business succession planning, as well as on day to day business transactional matters.
A key area of Matt's practice involves assisting agribusinesses and primary producers on the succession planning involved with transferring the farm to future generations. He works closely with clients' existing advisers, such as accountants, financial planners and banks, to ensure the most tax effective and best outcome is achieved for all family members.
Complementing his advisory and transactional practice is his work in assisting clients to resolve complex commercial disputes, including partnership disputes, shareholder oppression claims, shareholder disputes and complex trust disputes.
