Lindsay Owen-Taylor is a lawyer in Coleman Greig’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution Team. Lindsay’s in-depth legal knowledge and broad experience gives him the confidence to provide honest, pragmatic and time-sensitive guidance - and has led to him cultivating a reputation as both a reliable advocate and a trusted advisor.
Having worked primarily within dispute resolution since his admission as a lawyer, Lindsay’s experience has fostered an extensive knowledge and understanding of all stages of litigation.
Further to his experience in commercial disputes, debt recovery and enforcement of judgments - Lindsay’s expertise includes acting for clients in interlocutory hearings, including obtaining urgent freezing orders and acting in preliminary discovery matters before the Supreme Court.
He is similarly adept at representing clients in final hearings in Local, District, Supreme and Federal Courts, where he has achieved successful outcomes in a number of disputes over $1,000,000.
Predominantly acting for SMEs, family businesses and high net worth individuals – Lindsay’s strength as a litigator lies in his ability to effectively enforce commercial agreements, often with a focus on supply and services contracts, in obtaining practical commercial outcomes for his clients.
This client work frequently involves the development and assessment of strategies to negotiate suitable outcomes without recourse to the Courts, while also recognising those circumstances for which the commencement of Court proceedings may be appropriate in achieving the best outcome for his clients.
As a standing member of the NSW Young Lawyers Civil Litigation Committee, Lindsay has been published in the committee’s quarterly newsletter, The NSW Litigator. He is also a member of the Law Society of NSW – and volunteers as a judge for the Macquarie University Law Society’s Mooting competitions.
Lindsay enlisted in the Australian Army Reserve in July 2011 and served in the infantry for just over 6 years. He is also a keen traveller, having lived and studied in Turkey for 6 months - and enjoys participating in competitive level sports, including rugby, hockey and boxing.
