About Chris

Chris completed his Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and was admitted to practice in 2014. Prior to joining P&B Law, he was an Associate Solicitor at a well-respected, full-service law firm that has been providing professional legal services to the Bayside area for almost 15 years.

Chris is admitted to practice in both Victoria and the High Court. Whilst predominantly practising in Property Law, Chris has maintained a broad practice area, encompassing Litigation, Criminal Law, and Intervention Order matters. Chris has also appeared as a Solicitor Advocate in a range of courts, jurisdictions and tribunals, including the Magistrates Court, VCAT and the Supreme Court of Victoria.

Chris was delighted to join P&B Law in 2020 as a Senior Associate and Head of the Property Law Team. His varied experience in Property Law and exposure in other practice areas have meant that he is strongly placed to consider his client’s needs and aims to provide a flexible yet common-sense approach that is tailored to his client’s circumstances in a friendly and highly approachable way.

Chris has substantial experience in Victorian property transactions and enjoys assisting his clients in all aspects of their property matters. He is happy to deal with simple residential property conveyancing to large-scale complex commercial subdivisions and everything in between – from conception to conclusion.

Chris has also been a tragic Essendon supporter for as long as he can remember, and he enjoys good food and wine and a casual game of basketball.
