Charles commenced his articled clerkship at his father's law firm in 2004 and practised in Brisbane and Sydney prior to joining Attwood Marshall Lawyers.
He has a broad commercial litigation practice with a focus on property disputes, building disputes, shareholder/director disputes, equity, contract, insolvency and consumer disputes.
Attwood Marshall Lawyers' litigation practice has become a prominent force on the eastern seaboard, and Charles’ clients include listed companies, private companies and individuals from across the country.
Having previously acted for international corporations and blue-chip Australian companies, Charles brings significant experience to this unforgiving area of law enabling him to secure significant results for his clients – ranging from multi-million-dollar claims in the Federal Court of Australia and the High Court of Australia, to smaller claims on behalf of family-owned companies and individuals.
He approaches his clients’ matters pragmatically and obtains the best results by advising upon all options available and understanding his clients’ goals.
With only 5% of all litigated matters in Australia proceeding to trial on average, Charles understands the importance of rigorous negotiation and the considered implementation of alternative dispute resolution options, and his specialist dispute resolution accreditation from the Law Society of NSW puts him at the pinnacle of his peers in this very competitive area of law.
He entered the legal profession because of a strong desire to assist those who have been taken advantage of, and he enjoys the challenge, the intellectual stimulation and the diversity of the work associated with the area.
Charles holds a Bachelor of Business (Communication) and Bachelor of Laws, and is admitted to the High Court of Australia.
