Chris has been with Deutsch Miller since 2011 and is a trusted Senior Associate within the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution team.
Chris has a proven track record of achieving exceptional results for his clients. He takes pride in developing unique strategies to achieve their desired outcomes whilst minimising the risks and costs of Court action.
He has a demonstrated ability to tailor his advice to the individual circumstances of his clients, whether they be seasoned litigants or new to the whole courtroom experience.
After graduating from the Australian National University with First Class Honours in law, Chris started out his career with the Australian Government Solicitor in Canberra. Having acted for government departments and insurers, Chris understands the inner workings of the bureaucracy. This has been invaluable in his transition to a private practice. Chris has gone on to represent a number of individuals in the corporate and financial sectors who have faced investigation and regulatory action by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
He has acted on a broad range of matters including debt recovery, breakdowns in commercial contracts, insolvency and bankruptcy, corporate disputes, impasses between shareholders, breaches of directors duties, contentious property transactions, and pursuing or defending various other claims under contract, legislation, negligence, common law, and equity. Chris has represented clients in the local court right up to the High Court of Australia, and everything in between at both State and Federal jurisdictions.
When Chris is not at the office or in Court, he will often be found at a ski resort or on the sporting field playing soccer. He counts as his biggest success in life raising two beautiful children with his wife.
