Peter McMahon, Partner
I'm Peter McMahon. I'm a partner in the Sydney Real Estate group with Clayton Utz, but I have an Australia-wide practice, practising in projects all around Australia for some very major clients.
What do you do for clients?
Well I'm involved in a whole series of areas of property law including tourism projects, commercial property projects, the remediation of industrial property for conversion into residential land and that's when the market is in a strong position. When the market is affected, for example, by the recent GFC, then I'm also involved in some property workouts, turning some bad property projects around to be profitable.
What's so interesting about your area of law?
Real estate is exciting because at the end of all the hard work you see something substantial, something positive, something that the Australian economy benefits from, something that future generations of Australians can live in and enjoy.
