A dynamic, practical and commercial lawyer of note, John's efficient and fast turnaround, together with his pragmatic plain English advice, has resulted in a very supportive and loyal client base.

John is particularly well known for his calm manner when solving very challenging issues in his areas of expertise, including:

  • Public and private health sector issues
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Procurement and tender preparations and submissions
  • Franchising law issues, and
  • Helping to resolve contractual disputes.

John assists clients with both practical business support, such as setting up and structuring issues, affecting their day-to-day operations as well as technical issues such as drafting and reviewing contracts, compliance issues and regulatory requirements to operate their businesses.

John also has significant experience supporting Australian companies doing business overseas (especially in China) and foreign companies investing in Australia. This includes advising foreign companies (including foreign government investors) on setting up a business in Australia including any requirement for foreign investment approval.
