Matthew’s passion is helping clients successfully achieve their goals.

Much of Matthew’s practice involves collaborative planning and implementation with accountants, financial advisers and risk advisers as well as suburban and regional lawyers.  To help ensure alignment with each client’s objectives Matthew strives to remain outcome focused, work effectively and provide price certainty.

Since becoming a partner in 2002, Matthew has worked in tax, estate and succession planning, and provides strategic advice to business owners and high net worth individuals.  He offers bespoke structuring advice on asset protection, business sales and mergers and acquisitions.

Matthew has been fortunate to lead many of the family and business reorganisations that the firm has completed.

While a significant focus of Matthew’s practice is on small to medium enterprises and private business owners, the growth in this area in recent years has meant that he also regularly works on transactions with listed companies.

In part leveraging off the skills he developed working in the SME market space, Matthew has been the catalyst in developing a number of innovative legal products for advisers and their clients.

Matthew is a sought after presenter on behalf of many industry associations, accounting firms, financial advisers and commercial businesses.
