Associate Rhys Larsen prides himself on providing reliable, cost effective and commercial advice to individuals, corporate entities and local governments across Queensland.
Rhys commenced at WGC in 2016, practising in the areas of commercial conveyancing, multi-purpose leasing, business acquisitions and disposals, franchising, corporate governance, business succession planning and interpreting, and implementing development applications and approvals.
He also manages WGC’s residential conveyancing law team and spends significant time advising prospective buyers and sellers on the legal intricacies of dealing with their most valuable asset.
Alongside Director Graham Dutton, Rhys has a particular interest in complex transactional and leasing matters, where he strives to provide pragmatic solutions for his clients’ varied and often sophisticated ventures with a specific focus on pro-actively addressing risks.
Rhys maintains and improves his expertise through regularly engaging in continuing professional education and is often approached to deliver presentations on the ever-changing property law landscape.
He spearheaded WGC’s involvement in revolutionising property transactions through use of the Property Exchange Australia (PEXA) platform and is often consulted by PEXA on the effects of evolving legal technologies and their application in North Queensland.
Outside work, Rhys enjoys staying active, fishing (but rarely catching), maintaining a love/hate relationship with sport and, most importantly, spending time with family and friends.
