In particular, Thomas has extensive experience with large scale leasing, sales and acquisitions, financing documents and property development.

He has advised clients on vendor and purchaser due diligence, tenancy disputes and insolvency issues as well as green building issues and water rights.

Thomas also acts for a number of listed and unlisted funds and is familiar with the manner in which these funds operate and the commercial drivers for these investment platforms.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


It's hard to look past the business opportunities presented by Australia's harbour city. A gateway for the aviation, construction and insurance sectors, Sydney is also known as a centre for finance and trade.

Investment opportunities abound and HFW's specialist lawyers provide support in major real estate developments, shipping logistics operations, key infrastructure projects and hospitality developments as well as to insurance and re-insurance majors and asset financiers.
