Brad is a real “people person” who thrives on knowing that he is making a positive impact for his clients. It didn’t take Brad long to realise that the value a corporate and M&A lawyer brings to his clients reaches beyond legal answers: it is about connecting people, exceeding expectations from a service perspective and being able to offer an opinion steeped in more than 15 years of experience in commercial law firms in Australia, the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands (Jersey). This is why Brad has been recommended in the Doyles Guide for leading commercial lawyers in Queensland on 2018 and 2019. The Brisbane start-up ecosystem has consistently benefitted from Brad’s enthusiasm to help emerging start-ups and entrepreneurs navigate early stage capital raisings and legal issues. His commitment to start-ups sees him regularly give back at their events (as a participant and sponsor) as well as countless one-on-one mentoring sessions he has provided.
