Dan has over 40 years’ experience in advising private businesses including family businesses and farming families on their growth and succession issues, providing innovative but practical solutions.

This includes being involved in strategic and business planning processes either as an adviser or member of a governing board.

He is accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria as a Business Law Specialist, and by Family Business Australia as a Family Business Advisor. He has also undertaken the Family Business Institute course in family business advising.

He has been awarded the Law Institute of Victoria President’s General Award in recognition of excellence and outstanding contribution within the legal profession.

We don’t know how he fits it all in but he does – being one of the most efficient and passionate people we know helps. Away from his professional commitments, Dan is a lover of sport – especially AFL and cricket – and enjoys walking, English crime novels and spoiling his grandchildren.
