In his 16+ years of private practice, Trent has specialised entirely in property related matters. His years of diverse property law experience have seen him work in the world’s largest law firm, where he represented several Fortune 500 companies, Barclays Bank and the English Government in complex property transactions. For many years, Trent was also an integral member of a major property law firm in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, where he acted for major property players in transactional and advisory matters, ranging from shopping centre acquisitions and mixed use developments, to complex mezzanine and international private equity funding arrangements and property syndication work.
Today, Trent is best known for his primary specialisation in the accommodation, tourism and hospitality industries. Trent is amongst a rare handful of accommodation industry recognised lawyers in the country, having alone acted on over 2000 management rights, motel and caravan park transactions throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the Northern Territory. Trent arguably acts for more new entrants to the accommodation industry than any other lawyer in Australia. He regularly presents at seminars and conferences in both Australia and overseas within these practice areas.
Trent enjoys acting for large scale accommodation industry consortiums, listed and non listed companies, partnerships and single building operators in transactional and advisory matters. His hands on, grounded approach to achieving cost effective and timely results for his management rights clientele is well known throughout the industry. No instruction is either too big or too small.
Trent is also extensively experienced in other areas of the development, tourism and hospitality sectors, including mixed use developments, franchises, and body corporate transactional and advisory matters.
Trent’s other core area of specialisation is the retirement living sector. He possesses a wealth of retirement village knowledge, having acted for numerous retirement village operators, including both public and large private companies, across almost every jurisdiction in Australia. Trent’s technical and commercial expertise is regularly drawn upon by operators in developing and registering retirement villages, and handling all ongoing operational and compliance matters including village turnover conveyancing. His regulatory contacts and responsiveness are greatly valued by his clients in this rapidly expanding industry.
Trent holds a Bachelor of Laws and is an admitted solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland, Supreme Court of New South Wales and the Supreme Court of England and Wales. He is also a current member of the Queensland Law Society and the Australian Resident Accommodation Managers’ Association.
Outside of work, Trent enjoys fatherhood and taking full advantage of the outdoors lifestyle afforded by the South East Queensland climate. Whilst he is interested in just about any sport, he readily admits to an unhealthy obsession with snow skiing.
