Another year, another esteemed “Best Lawyers” awards from the Australian Financial Review, which recognises outstanding talent, achievement and service across the whole spectrum of Australia’s legal practice disciplines. As well as individual annual awards, the AFR produces an ongoing “Best Lawyers” listing and new additions to the directory were announced.
Once again we were delighted to walk away with a large number of “Best Lawyer” listings… plus another “Lawyer of the Year” award.
Founding partner & director “Lawyer of the Year” once more.
With more than 40 years legal expertise under his belt, Sandy leads our Corporate & Commercial and Intellectual Property practices, specialising in wine, agribusiness, ICT and private health insurance. He was proud as punch to be recognised in the awards another year running.
A seasoned “top-shelf” law practitioner, renowned for excellence.
Joe has been busy building his powerful reputation for more than 30 years, developing innovative strategies and finely-tuned risk management skills which make him a formidable force in dispute resolution. We’re lucky to have him on the team, and we couldn’t be happier about his “Best Lawyer” listing.
Founding partner & a favourite with our clients.
John’s reputation for no airs, graces or ego has made him a favourite with clients for more than 30 years, and his no nonsense approach has ensured stunning success in the smooth management of workers compensation claims. In recognition of his impressive performance, John received another “Best Lawyer” award.
Our “one of a kind” transactional & commercial practitioner.
For nearly 25 years Brett has provided deeply valued legal advice on major projects, mergers and acquisitions and complex contractual documentation. Brett is widely regarded as being among the top practitioners in his field, so it’s no surprise that he continues to be recognised as a “Best Lawyer”.
Another award listing for our accomplished all-rounder.
Briony is a DW Fox Tucker director and prized asset to many of our clients across a whole host of legal arenas, including business structuring issues, state taxes, stamp duty, land tax, payroll, taxation disputes, trusts, superannuation, property, joint ventures, shares and all kinds of commercial transactions.
Director, negotiator & problem solver.
Mark Gowans’ sound, practical and constructive advice on insolvency, commercial, contractual and transactional disputes has been a massive asset to his clients for many years. Mark displays decisive thinking, inherent flexibility and a true desire to solve problems.
Pre-eminent tax specialist continues to excel.
Since 2012 John has consistently been recognised by his peers as one of Australia’s top Tax lawyers. He was also recognised by Best Lawyers Australia as Adelaide Tax Law Lawyer of the Year in 2015. This is worthy recognition for the practical and effective tax solutions John provides to companies, accountants, financial planners and private clients.
Last year’s “Lawyer of the Year” continues to impress.
At the 2017 awards DW Fox Tucker director and employment law guru Ben Duggan was awarded “Lawyer of the Year” in Adelaide’s Labour and Employment Law category. In 2018 Ben’s expertise in his craft continues to be recognised, with Best Lawyer listings in two of the award categories.
Although our number one priority is and always will be achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients, we gratefully accept these awards and warmly congratulate our big team of “Best Lawyers”.
