“It’s a privilege to stand up for the little guys working hard on the land.”
With a background in the engineering industry, including several years with a multinational engineering firm in Tokyo, Rory stands by his clients with the legal and technical knowledge, expertise and support they need to get the best possible outcome.
Rory understands that, there are a lot of legal issues that landholder clients face which are of a technical nature. Whether it’s coal seam gas impacts on water bores or the impacts of large infrastructure on the land, he is able to apply his understanding of science and engineering to the legal issues that clients face. By focusing on the people affected and how science supports the individual circumstances of each landholder, Rory aims to ensure that clients are compensated accordingly.
Intelligent and systematic, Rory is always a lawyer with a heart for his clients.
