Frank Higginson, Hynes Legal

Frank Higginson heads the community titles practice at Hynes Legal. Frank commenced five years articles of clerkship on the Gold Coast while studying law externally in January 1992 and apart from a two-year hiatus working in London with a multinational firm from 1997 to 1999 he has practiced in Queensland in property matters for his entire career. Frank joined Hynes Legal in 2001. He became a partner/director in 2004 and since then has whittled his practice down to the two keys areas for strata law in Queensland - body corporate law and management rights. He and his team are the only experts in Queensland that truly specialise in both of these areas of law. The rationale for this is the belief that when there are issues in dispute, it helps enormously (from a legal, strategic and commercial position) to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and views of the other party. It creates the opportunity to make commercially sensible suggestions to enable the resolution of all issues in dispute. Acting for only one side of an industry (particularly if vociferously so) prevents that. Frank's LinkedIn Profile.
