Accredited Specialist, Commercial Litigation
Nick Kallipolitis is a Principal Lawyer and a member of Coleman Greig's Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team, and has been an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation since November 2013.
Having worked for businesses, individuals, government bodies, and corporations, Nick has significant experience in the fields of Trade Practices, Contract Disputes (including issues involving the departure of former employees), Building and Construction Disputes, Banking & Finance Disputes, Intellectual Property, Professional Negligence and Corporations Law Disputes.
Practising exclusively in the area of Commercial Litigation since becoming a lawyer in 2005, Nick has also become a skilled solicitor advocate, appearing in the majority of Commonwealth and State Courts and Tribunals at both Hearings and Interlocutory Applications. As a result, Nick has gained firsthand knowledge of the risks and complexities of being involved in litigation, whilst at the same time being an advocate for alternative dispute resolution, seeking to achieve commercially sound outcomes at all times.
Having been involved in the full circle of a wide range of major litigious matters, Nick understands the importance of working closely with his clients in order to come to a clear understanding of their individual business, and/or personal requirements - making the tailoring of his services a priority at all times.
Since joining Coleman Greig in 2011, Nick has developed a particular expertise in the building and construction industry; delivering presentations, working with clients and their employees (including Project Managers) and authoring articles. He has been involved in large and complex disputes relating to both the Home Building Act and Security of Payments legislation amongst others, having acted for developers, builders and homeowners.
In that time, Nick has also built a strong insolvency practice, having developed a number of referral networks with insolvency practitioners. In doing so, he has equipped himself with the ability to provide high level advice to clients at both ends of the spectrum, including those struggling with issues relating to insolvency, as well as those who require advice with regard to the restructuring of their business.
Outside of his litigation practice, Nick enjoys giving back to the local community, which he does through his involvement in the Coleman Greig Challenge. He is also involved in the Parramatta District Law Society, and works as an advisor to the Western Sydney University School of Law.
