The land law of New South Wales is a highly complex and extremely developed system of regulating real property rights. I bring forty years of experience to the practice of land law.
My practice is centred on all and any land title problems with a special focus on creating efficient solutions; in particular, any matter arising under the Real Property Act 1900 or its cognate legislation.
I was formerly an examiner of title (senior legal officer) at the NSW Land Registry Services (then the Land Titles Office) for fourteen years.
I have worked on land law and land policy not only in New South Wales but also the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations, Habitat (UN Centre for Human Settlements) and the Governments of Indonesia, East Timor and Bangladesh.
I have held positions as Lecturer at the University of New South Wales School of Geomatics and Teacher at The Sydney Institute (TAFE).
Please see my Curriculum VItae for further particulars of my work as a lawyer since being admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 1986.
In the spirit of reconciliation I acknowledge the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
