ABOUT SEAN POWELL

Sean specialises in estate disputes, estate administration and estate planning, with a particular focus on contested wills. In line with his focus, he will soon complete a Masters of Applied Law, with a specialisation in Wills and Estates.

After graduating from his law degree with honours in 2013, Sean was snapped up by a large Brisbane CBD law firm. There he gained valuable litigation experience in a wide range of practise areas, including: Personal Injuries, Professional Liability, Construction, Employment and Maritime Law.

Life then enticed Sean to practise law just south of border, where his cross-jurisdictional legal career has seen him gain extensive experience in Queensland and New South Wales, in Succession Law (wills and estates) and Commonwealth Family Law.

Outside of the law, Sean has a keen interest in business. He is a Director of the Bendigo Bank at Tugun and a member of the Bank’s Finance, Risk and Audit Committee. He is also active in our local community through his membership of the Southern Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce.

Sean knows what his clients need from their lawyer in difficult and challenging times. He has acted for small, medium and large enterprises, multinational organisations, employers, employees and individual clients.  He understands what it takes for families to create their wealth and their natural desire to protect what has taken a lifetime to build and preserve.

With a strong client focus, Sean will work collaboratively with you to foster outcomes best suited to your needs.
