Voyage of the Beagle

This year is the start of my voyage through the world of blogging. A little bit like the ‘Voyage of the Beagle’ by Charles Darwin! It took him five years sailing around the world, but the result was a revolution in acedemic writings known as ‘The Origin of the Species’. I am hoping to create a fresh view of the world!

After many years of writing for legal publications, I have decided to share a few parts my clients have found interesting. My aim is to continue to build on these themes largely based in commercial and succession law. Given the diversity of our business, we see many interesting case studies. I would like to alert people to the issues and suggest a new persepctive  with a twist. Through these articles, I hope to demonstrate our point of difference, the reasons why we do things a certain way and to better engage with our clients in the future. Best of all I hope to get some feedback, so please let me know if you are watching!


In essence, our business is all about helping you create and maintain value both in your asset structures and personally.  This includes your business, your investments, your family and your superannuation. Here are a few reasons why we think we can make a difference to you in all of these areas.
