Oliver Small

Oliver has practiced as a dispute resolution lawyer for over 10 years, acting as a solicitor advocate for clients in the Local, District and Supreme Court of New South Wales and the Australian Federal Courts.

Oliver has represented clients on a broad range of complex corporate and commercial litigation matters involving contract law, regulatory investigations, corporate governance, director’s liability, securities and financial services law, shareholder claims, insolvency, consumer law, torts and claims for equitable relief. Oliver has also acted for corporate insureds and insurers in contentious and non-contentious matters.

A key feature of Oliver’s role at Deutsch Miller is to advise clients on strategic courses of action during the litigation process as well as advising on legal risk exposure and management.

Oliver also has significant experience in alternative dispute resolution, including substantial multi-party mediations, having previously been accredited as a mediator.

Oliver has bachelor’s degrees in both Law and Business and has a Master of Laws in Corporate and Commercial Law from the University of New South Wales. Prior to joining Deutsch Miller, Oliver worked for over 7 years in the dispute resolution team of one of Australia’s largest law firms. Prior to being admitted as a solicitor, Oliver was employed as a Tipstaff in the Common Law Division of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.

Oliver is the Captain of the Deutsch Miller Run Club, and in his spare time tries to fit in his love of kayaking, riding, skiing, soccer, skating or surfing between looking after his two young children.
