Daniel has extensive experience in both fields, having previously practiced as a solicitor for 9 years in the Commercial Litigation Group at Freehills (now Herbert Smith Freehills) and then as a Principal Solicitor at the Victorian Government Solicitor's Office.  He also served for a year as an Associate to Justice Sundberg at the Federal Court.

Public law

His practice also includes both professional disciplinary and criminal work, having represented professional regulatory bodies and government investigators, including in corruption and integrity related matters.  He has appeared previously as a solicitor advocate in VCAT, the Magistrates’ Court and the Coroners Court.

Commercial law

Daniel’s main areas of practice in commercial law include corporations law, trade practices, contract and trust law and professional negligence.

Before coming to the Bar, he acted as solicitor for a range of commercial clients (including in-house counsel) in the major project and property development industries, transport, energy, general retail and financial services sectors.  He conducted both small and large scale litigation in the Supreme, County and Federal Courts as well as the AAT and VCAT.
