Ian was admitted to practice in 1978 and, following some time overseas, he joined one of Australia’s then oldest law firms, McCoy, Grove and Atkinson, becoming a partner in 1988. He has extensive experience advising and acting for a wide range of clients from individuals to real estate developers, shopping centre managers, accountants and private schools.
His expertise extends to property law, conveyancing (both domestic and commercial), and wills, probate and family provision claims. Much of his experience has covered legal services required by families, including purchasing a home, establishing and running a business, and dealing with the administration of deceased estates.
Ian has established and maintained long-term relationships with his clients, and is known as much for his personal approach as for his strong commercial focus.
