Frank has experience in both dispute resolution and corporate advisory matters.
Frank's capabilities lie in his project management skills. In a legal career spanning in excess of 25 years, he has been involved in significant special project litigation which has platformed corporate advisory capabilities. That litigation has focused on the Corporations Act, insolvency, banking and finance, competition and consumer law and commercial property, contract and equity.
Frank's insolvency and reconstruction expertise has positioned him to consult across a number of litigious and turnaround projects. In each core competency he has actively engaged with partners to introduce capital to transactions and to advise generally in these areas across dispute resolution, corporate advisory and risk management.
Frank is an active participant in many areas that the firm focuses on and applies his core legal competencies to industries such as aged care, agribusiness, defence, franchising, hospitality, banking and finance, energy and succession planning.
Frank is a director of the National Heart Foundation Inc (SA Division) and a life member of the Julian Burton Burns Charitable Trust. He is a member of the Law Society of South Australia, the Law Council of Australia, the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the Australian Corporate Lawyers Association and the Insolvency Practitioners Association of Australia.
