White Knight Lawyers is celebrating its second year of practice.

Our firm has grown significantly with the support of its clients and we have worked on very exciting legal engagements across diverse practice areas. More importantly, we have achieved some great results for our clients.

Some of the highlights for our second year include the following:

  • Acting for defendants and cross-claimants in Supreme Court of NSW Equity Division proceedings with respect to the sale of a financial planning business. The matter involves a claim for declaratory relief and a cross-claim for breach of contract, innocent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, and misleading or deceptive conduct, amongst other things. The proceedings are ongoing.
  • Acting for applicant in Part IVC Administrative Appeals Tribunal proceedings against the Commissioner of Taxation and successfully setting aside the objection decision. The reasons for decision will be published shortly.
  • Acting for respondent in NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal Internal Appeal proceedings. See Baserite Constructions Pty Ltd v Tanios [2020] NSWCATAP 77.
