He’s known for his expertise in contract negotiation and his focus on reaching commercial resolutions for clients in situations where contract disputes arise.
With a wealth of both international and domestic experience in commercial property and contract law, Stuart’s strong negotiation skills are a result of his previous successes working with a range of clients and industries.

Outside of work, Stuart and his wife Penny are active coaches and supporters in the lives of their three teenage children – all avid members of multiple sports teams and clubs. A keen outdoorsman, you’ll often find Stuart out on the water. When he’s not sailing, fishing or water-skiing, he’s taking advantage of the slopes with a spot of snow-skiing.
