LLB (First Class Honours), BA
Shane has over 20 years' experience in dispute resolution and corporate/commercial litigation, with particular expertise in disputes with sector regulators.
Shane’s key strength is his ability to devise a litigation and/or settlement strategy that focuses on his client’s key commercial objectives, and financial circumstances.
Shane also has access to a diverse network of barristers, experts, and industry representatives.
Prior to joining the Deutsch Miller partnership in 2014, Shane worked for top-tier litigation firms, including Bell Gully (NZ), Herbert Smith LLP (London), Atanaskovic Hartnell (Sydney). Shane also worked for the Treasury Solicitor for England & Wales in a specialised public law practice.
Shane regularly advises on complex claims in contract, equity, financial services regulation, and public and administrative law (including judicial review and statutory appeals). He acts for a diverse range of clients, including domestic and offshore banks, public and private companies, SMEs, and private individuals. Shane is also frequently entrusted with quality referrals from law firms in circumstances where they are conflicted and unable to act.
While helping run a thriving law practice can be hard work, Shane has a passion for sports administration. He is the Chairman of Aqua Rugby Australia, and has an uncanny ability to find time to attend various sporting events around Australia and the world. He has also come to terms with the fact that his two children have Australian accents (and who they might eventually support in the Bledisloe Cup...).
