Phillip Carlson

Senior Associate

I am a solicitor who understands the challenges faced by litigation. I can explain the law and its effects on your business in a streamlined and cost-effective manner by using easy to understand language. My goal is to make the process of litigation less daunting and ensure that the best outcome is achieved.

I have a breadth of knowledge and experience in complex personal injuries insurance litigation, employment law litigation, planning and environment litigation and various areas of contract law litigation spanning more than 15 years. Most of my experience has been obtained as a result of representing plaintiffs and I see this as an immense strength for working at BTLawyers.

I utilise that experience to provide my clients with a complete understanding of the challenges that will likely confront them moving forward as well as ways to make improvements to business practices in an attempt to eliminate future litigation.

Being a lawyer is my 2nd career, having proudly served in the United States Marine Corps for nearly 8 years as a Presidential Guard, an expert marksman and musician. I enjoy being on-site and understanding my client’s businesses and the challenges they encounter on a daily basis.

I also understand what hard work is, its benefits and how that translates into the successes and longevity of all business types. Furthermore, having obtained my MBA allows me to garner additional insights not commonly held by lawyers. This translates well into understanding my client’s business operations and requirements from a unique, in-depth perspective.
