Neil started at Chamberlains Law Firm as a paralegal in early 2016, and is now working as a lawyer within the Litigation & Restructuring Team in our Canberra office. He was admitted as a solicitor in the ACT Supreme Court in October 2019 and his areas of specialisation currently include corporate & personal insolvency, debt recovery and commercial litigation (including professional negligence, nuisance and unit title management disputes).

Being one of our youngest solicitors in the office, Neil developed a deep interest in his areas of specialisation at a very young age. He recognises the important role that lawyers play in serving individuals and corporations during times of need, and prides himself in assisting his clients in a creative and efficient manner to resolve their disputes. He has earned the respect of his clients and colleagues, with his hard work and dedication over the years both at university and in our office, earning him a spot as a finalist in the Law Student of the Year category of the 2018 Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards.

Neil’s witty humour and enthusiasm in the office is cherished by his colleagues. He is not only the go to litigation lawyer within our Canberra office, but he is also the fire warden and is responsible for running the annual Pool Tournament at Chamberlains Law Firm. During his spare time, Neil is an avid hiker and traveller and he remains deeply involved with his global Hare Krishna community. When not stuck in Canberra because of a pandemic, Neil spends his annual leave with his family between India and Slovenia. He can also fluently speak 4 languages with Croatian as his next mission.

Neil knows that being a good lawyer requires a commitment to ongoing development in this field and he intends to use his high values and passion for his work to carve his own path in this industry.
