            Andrea Towson

            Principal Lawyer

            Andrea is a Principal Lawyer in DWF’s Real Estate team, and is based in our Melbourne office. 

            Andrea is a highly experienced planning and environment lawyer with over 15 years of industry experience. Andrea's expertise also extends to general property and commercial litigation matters, including complex property due diligence, subdivision structuring and staging, owners corporation disputes and compulsory land acquisition claims.

            This unique skill set means that Andrea is one of the few lawyers involved in the entire life cycle of a project, from acquisition through to completion. Andrea's holistic understanding of the development cycle saves clients time and money – by dealing with planning, environment and land use issues in a proactive and pre-emptive way at the outset of a project.
