Having been thrown in the deep end at Floreani Coates and Co within 6 months of graduating from law school in 1991, Sean was forced to swim or risk drowning.
Thankfully he managed to service the needs of 50 clients from day 1 and successfully develop a skill set in the general practice that was owned and operated by Bob Floreani and Michael Coates, both at Goodwood and Port Lincoln.
Gathering experience at a rate of knots for a diverse range of clientele (being individuals, mums and dads, SME’s) on a range of legal issues (property, development, building construction, commercial, corporate, litigation, arbitration, maritime, fishing, finance, estate planning, insolvency…and whatever else came along) saw Sean develop a love for solving the problem rather than exacerbating or creating a new one.
In 2001 Sean created FRS Legal, which has since merged, reformed and grown as FBR Law.
Sean is solution focussed, practical and a lateral thinker.
He has developed a unique skill set in the property, development and construction sector and since 2008 has been recognised as “property lawyer of the year”, and as ‘pre-eminent’ in the SA legal profession (Building and Construction).
