/ Experience

Tim is an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation who advises on all types of litigation and disputes, with a specific focus on matters involving insolvency and restructuring, distributed ledger technology (cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and NFTs) and other fintech, the enforcement of security interests, proceeds of crime matters, partnership and shareholder disputes, misleading or deceptive conduct actions, complex commercial or construction contract disputes, and novel estates matters. He routinely appears in Court and at mediations.

Whilst a specialist technical litigator by profession, he has in recent years garnered industry-leading experience working in the digital assets and fintech space. He advises businesses of all sizes (from a NASDAQ top-10 entity to Brisbane-based start-ups) working in or interacting with the digital asset space - particularly in his speciality area of dispute resolution, but also by assisting them to negotiate significant contracts, providing regulatory advice, and assisting with interactions with regulators. For many of his clients in this space, he functions akin to an 'external in-house counsel'.  

Tim holds qualifications in Laws (First Class Honours) and Business (Management) from QUT. His Specialist Accreditation in Commercial Litigation was obtained in 2022 from the Queensland Law Society (along with the award for achieving the highest mark that year), and he holds a graduate diploma in legal practice from the College of Law. Tim is also the President of the Management Committee of Redcliffe Opportunities for Peoples’ Enhancement Inc and a member of the Queensland Law Society Commercial Litigation Specialist Accreditation Advisory Committee.
