Guy specialises in commercial litigation and dispute resolution and advises regarding property and leasing, building and construction (including arbitrations and adjudications), professional negligence,  employment law, corporations, planning and general contractual disputes.

Guy regularly appears as counsel in federal and state courts and tribunals in Western Australia.

In addition to acting for clients in court actions and tribunals, Guy also brings his experience in legal disputes to structuring agreements and drafting legal documents designed to anticipate and prevent costly legal disputes.

Guy was previously a partner at Hotchkin Hanly lawyers, and before that, he was a lawyer at Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now King and Wood Mallesons), in Perth and in Melbourne.
