Our principal, Peter Thatcher, is a Family Dispute Practitioner registered with the Attorney General and is also a registered Mediator under the National Mediators of Australia Scheme.
For approximately 30 years Peter worked as a Lawyer in both private practice and within the Commonwealth Government. During that time, he has seen first-hand the damage that is often caused by drawn out court cases and the sense clients get of no longer being in control of their own destiny.
In family dispute matters, Peter is committed to working with all parties to find common ground and to avoid court so that families can move forward with post separation parenting and/or property division.
In commercial and employment matters, Peter has also worked as a Commonwealth Lawyer for 10 years and has developed a keen understanding of workplace or commercial disputes and how to manage those situations to achieve a positive resolution.
In all matters Peter’s mantra is the same – Avoid court and stay in control
