Petros Macarounas

B.Med.Sci, LLB (Hons)

Admitted as a Barrister in NSW in 2012

 

A highly motivated and driven barrister, Petros maintains a broad practice, with his core areas of focus encompassing commercial and equity, common law, family law and criminal law.

Petros holds a Bachelor of Laws (with Honours) and a Bachelor of Medical Science from the University of Technology, Sydney. The combination of these two disciplines, in addition to being awarded the Roche Award for Excellence in Pharmacology at university, provides Petros with a solid foundation upon which to interpret medical evidence in the many cases in which he advises and appears.

Within the spheres of his practice, Petros regularly appears in interlocutory applications, as well as in matters at both first instance and appeal (led and unled) in the Supreme, District and Local Courts of New South Wales, the Federal Circuit Court, Family Court of Australia and the NSW Court of Appeal. He appears predominantly for plaintiffs in personal injury matters, and insurers in motor vehicle property litigation, and his commercial practice sees him acting for both individuals and small companies. Other matters to which his experience extends includes worker’s compensation, wills and probate, fraud, building and construction and property.

Prior to being called to the Bar, Petros practised as a solicitor at Henry Davis York and McLachlan Chilton, where he gained significant experience in the areas in which he continues to practice, providing him with a well-balanced approach when representing clients. Such areas include litigation and disputes relating to insurance, property, family provisions, estates, building and construction, CTP, personal injury and motor vehicle property damage.
