Tim Fynes-Clinton, Executive Partner


Corporate Governance and Commercial, Administrative and Industrial Law.


LLB. Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland. Solicitor of the High Court of Australia.


Tim joined the firm as an articled clerk in 1989, and was admitted as a solicitor in 1991.  Tim has experienced all facets of the firm’s practice, including acquisition and resumption of land (and subsequent Land Court proceedings), general advice work, commercial conveyancing and leasing, Planning and Environment Court appeals, declaratory and injunction proceedings (both in the Supreme and the Planning and Environment Courts), drafting of local laws and subordinate local laws, all forms of Council prosecutions, general Council litigation and Council liability litigation. 

Tim’s particular area of expertise lies in advising on:

  • industrial/workplace relations;
  • rating and revenue strategies;
  • Councillors’ roles and responsibilities;
  • contracts and tendering strategies; and
  • governance issues for Councils, generally.

As the firm’s executive partner, Tim divides his time between managing the business of the firm and attending to needs of the firm’s clients.  In this role, Tim is the first point of contact for new matters (in the absence of a client having an existing familiarity with other members of the firm) and is always available to discuss the status of any continuing matters, which the firm is conducting, on a client’s behalf.

Tim holds a current practising certificate from the Queensland Law Society.
