Gamini is a results-driven lawyer whose practice canvases all areas of family law including property, children, financial agreements and intervention orders.
Whilst always an advocate for the early resolution of cases through negotiation and mediation, Gamini is equally adept at making urgent applications for spousal maintenance or costs and/or obtaining injunctions and freezing orders to preserve matrimonial property.
As distinct from other family lawyers, Gamini is also an experienced accountant and tax specialist, having previously worked at KPMG in Mergers & Acquisitions Tax and at the ATO in Objections & Litigation, where he acted against a taxpayer in a $350 million tax dispute in the Federal Court.
His technical expertise is highly advantageous in financial discovery, particularly in complex property cases which often involve business valuations, forensic examinations of financial accounts and analyses of intricate trust structures through which assets are often undervalued or concealed.
Away from the office, Gamini spends much of his time at Lake Eildon mastering the art of all things fishing and boating. A footy tragic, he finds himself an often Collingwood Football Club apologist and looks forward to the Club’s return to the top eight.
