Nathan was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Western Australia in 2011. He passionately works closely with his clients to achieve a broad range of legal and commercial objectives. He is especially skilled in providing clients with pragmatic solutions and explaining legal concepts in plain language.
Having worked in a number of reputable boutique and medium size law firms in Western Australia, Nathan has considerable experience across a diverse range of practice areas including Commercial Contracts, Business Acquisitions, Intellectual Property, Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Property.
Not content with being a ‘jack of all trades, master at none’, Nathan specialises in Estate Planning and Estate Administration where he goes above and beyond to provide an efficient and effective legal service delivered with a high degree of professionalism and empathy. He understands that preparing your Will or administering the estate of a loved one is a highly emotional and often difficult task for any client.
Nathan believes that “as a lawyer, you never stop learning”. This belief has led Nathan to continuously develop his legal and commercial knowledge, and to share this knowledge with clients and colleagues by conducting seminars and presentations on informative legal and commercial topics of interest.
Outside of the office, Nathan enjoys deejaying electronic music, dragging his wife along for hikes and spending time with the family (but mostly his pet Kelpie).
