Jason is a senior commercial lawyer with over 16 years experience specialising in dispute resolution and insolvency.

Prior to joining SLF Lawyers in late 2017, Jason spent over 12 years at a top tier Australian law firm and spent almost 5 years at a national mid-tier firm.  Over that time, he has advised and acted for a wide range of clients across many industries.

Jason has a proven ability to quickly understand complexities and devise risk management strategies.  He strives to achieve strong outcomes to advance his clients’ goals and, where possible, seeks to avoid contested and costly legal proceedings.

When called upon to litigate, Jason conducts proceedings in an efficient manner that is not process driven.  He has been the key lawyer in matters in the High Court, the Federal Court and all courts and tribunals in the Victorian hierarchy, and achieved excellent results for his clients.  This has included being the lead lawyer for a party in complex representative proceedings concerning the rectification of the superannuation fund of a large multi-national corporation.

Jason is well versed in acting for lenders, insolvency practitioners, creditors, debtors and directors in insolvency, recovery and reconstruction matters.  He is a member of the Insolvency and Reconstruction Law Committee of the Law Council of Australia.
