About Us

Our Principal Lawyer and Legal Director, Dane McLeod, has an Honours degree in Law from Monash University and has been a lawyer for more than 17 years. Dane was previously a Barrister, and a member of the Victorian Bar, for more than 10 years. He is an experienced advocate, having appeared in most Courts and Tribunals.  He has advised solicitors and corporate clients on a wide range of matters across the commercial law spectrum. He is currently the Chair of the Law Institute of Victoria’s Courts Practice Committee and a member of its Litigation Executive Committee.

Given his experience, he is able to both act as your solicitor and appear on your behalf in Court. This is more effective and efficient for you. It saves you money and time, and ensures that all communications are simplified, straightforward and direct.

Dane has extensive business experience. He worked in various roles with two Australian banks and in senior management for some of the world’s largest hospitality and tourism operators where he had responsibility for businesses with a multi-million dollar turnover. He understands the commercial imperatives and drivers of your business and can ensure that you are advised, and your litigation is conducted, effectively and efficiently with those imperatives and drivers in mind.

We act for individuals, companies and other law firms. We are also engaged as consultants to provide strategic advice or litigation management services to either corporates or other law firms.

We can operate in-house or from our own premises; as a independent contractor or according to the traditional law firm model.

And whilst we can advise broadly in many areas of law, we have particular expertise in commercial litigation, retail leasing and building and construction matters. If you are unsure if we can help you, please feel free to contact us to dicusss your requirements.
