Jim joined Ritchie & Castellan as a Senior Solicitor in February 2007. Having practised law for over 30 years, Jim’s background is that of a generalist lawyer with broadbased skills in commercial litigation. Over the last 10 years Jim’s practice has focussed predominantly in the areas of local government, planning and environmental law.
The return to private practice came after spending two years working in the in house legal team of the City Prosecutor’s Office of Sydney City Council. Prior to working with Sydney City Council, Jim worked with Geoff Castellan in Parramatta. During his time there, Jim regularly received instructions from both local government clients and private developers in a wide variety of matters.
Jim brings to Ritchie & Castellan a set of key skills which includes a strong analytical ability, coupled with commonsense and a high level of knowledge in both local government and planning law as well as commercial litigation. At the same time, Jim excels in developing a tremendous working relationship with clients.
Jim is a memeber of the Law Society of New South Wales.
