Gary Best, Partner
I am Gary Best, a partner of Clayton Utz. I am the National Head of Real Estate and the National Head of the Real Estate Markets industry group.
What do you do for clients?
I like to understand what a client wants out of a deal. I like to understand the transaction, as well as the client, because I believe that unless you do that, you'll never get the legal input correct.
What's so interesting about your area of law?
I find real estate very interesting because I can look out the window and see the deals that I have worked on. I never know where I will be taken. The deals are complex, they're worth a lot of money and they're interesting. So I find that compelling, encouraging and keeps me motivated to learn more about what I'm involved in.
