Brett McGrath is the President at the Law Society of New South Wales. He is also a Partner at Marsdens Law Group and is in charge of the Family Dispute Resolution department and specialises in family law.

Brett was previously a Senior Judicial Registrar at the Sydney Registry in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.

During his four years at the Court, Brett presided over and determined complex property and parenting interim hearing proceedings in both Divisions 1 and 2.

A gifted mediator and negotiator, Brett has developed a reputation for settling the most complex and difficult family law matters to have come before the Court during his tenure. In recognition of his exceptional dispute resolution skills, in October 2022 the Court appointed Brett to the role of Director – National Registrar Operations (Dispute Resolution) and helped develop the Court’s new co-mediation model now implemented across Australia.
