On completion of his law degree Nick commenced practice in private law firms in Townsville in 2004 where he worked predominantly in the field of land and property law for clients developing land and body corporate lots for sale. He was involved in drafting and advising on a range of commercial and contract matters relevant to development and sale of real property.
