Based in our Melbourne Office which opened in November 2016, Charles works primarily in litigation and dispute resolution. Charles represents both plaintiffs in a wide range of personal injury litigation including Workers Compensation, Comcare, Public Liability and TPD claims as well as defendants and has experience in managing large-scale litigation including large-scale discovery and using ‘big-data’ to shape a holistic approach to case management. Charles also has an interest in defamation and media law.

Between 2014 and 2016 Charles was initially seconded and then employed by one of Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers’ major clients, this experience deepening his litigation practice and entailing frequent involvement in a Royal Commission and other Inquiries.

“Having worked both as a solicitor and going in-house for one of the firm’s clients, I have a unique insight into understanding the commercial and practical needs of clients – primarily, cutting through the ‘noise’ to achieve successful and cost effective outcomes.”
