Tim is the Legal Practitioner Director of HTW Legal Group Pty Ltd (HTW Legal). After being admitted as a Solicitor, Tim immersed himself in a variety of areas of law, representing both domestic and international clients.
After almost 10 years in the legal industry, Tim saw there was more he could give to his clients and so to give scope to pursue his vision he opened HTW Legal in 2020. With his focus on providing his clients with sound legal advice, superior service and a personable experience, Tim has earned himself a reputation of being his client’s go-to strategic advisor.

Tim has a particular interest in major commercial and residential property development matters. Tim grew up in and around Brisbane and the Gold Coast, gaining strong and valuable insider knowledge of the area that has proven to be an asset to his clients considering and carrying out their development projects. Whether acting on multi-million dollar residential developments, multi-tenanted commercial properties or retail shopping centres, Tim’s number one focus has always been to empower his clients by providing the knowledge and representation needed to bring their ventures to a profitable conclusion.

During his career, Tim has also successfully represented many clients in civil litigation, investment migration & general property matters.

Tim is also a talented and passionate Pianist. Having studied and played piano for 25 years, his free time is often spent refining his skills and letting his creative juices flow.

In addition, Tim is a self-proclaimed ‘foodie’. He can often be found sampling the delicious menus of the Gold Coast’s best cafés and restaurants. Since he recently became a dog-dad to Cavoodle Mei Mei, his culinary adventures have been curtailed and dining in has become a lot more popular in his house!
