Samuel has practised in commercial litigation since his admission as a solicitor in 2007. He manages litigation matters and frequently appears as an advocate, whilst also assisting businesses and private individuals.

Samuel McMahon is known for his practical nature, aptitude for problem solving, strong communication skills and extensive litigation experience. These attributes allow him to successfully assist clients in understanding the various aspects of litigation, guiding them through their available options in order to achieve their best result. In numerous cases where litigation has been threatened against his clients, Samuel has been able to advise and assist with taking strategic steps, which have successfully averted the threatened litigation entirely.

Samuel is a lateral thinker with a strong history acting for a diverse range of clients. His wealth of knowledge often results in the provision of successful ‘outside the box’ strategies and advice that others may not have thought of. Solicitors often look to Samuel for advice or opinion, attesting to his technical command of legal principle.

Outside the office, Samuel enjoys playing cricket and rugby union. He is also a talented musician, currently holding the position of Parish Organist of Christ Church, Essendon.
