Rob is a director of Douglas Cheveralls and practices in the areas of litigation and dispute resolution.

Rob aims to provide cost-effective and commercially sensible advice to clients, at the same time as guiding them around the potential pitfalls of litigation.

Rob was admitted to practice in New Zealand in 2005, New South Wales in 2007, Western Australia in 2010, and in the High Court of Australia in 2012.

Rob has experience in a wide range of litigious matters, including contract disputes, property law, administrative law, trade practices, intellectual property, and insolvency. He has appeared as an advocate in most Western Australian State Courts, the Federal Court, and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

Rob is also a nationally accredited mediator (NMAS) and a panelist on the Law Society of Western Australia’s Mediator Panel.

Prior to working as a lawyer, Rob was a member of WA Police for close to six years, including three years as a Detective.

Away from the office, Rob is a volunteer on the board of management of a not-for-profit senior citizens centre, and is the current chairman of the RugbyWA Juniors judiciary panel. On winter weekends you will most likely find him loping around a rugby field with a whistle in his hand, dreaming of the day he will referee the Rugby World Cup final.
