After graduating with Honours from Bond University over 20 years ago, Murray worked as a barrister, as Corporate Counsel, as an accredited mediator, and as a solicitor.
As a barrister, Murray acted as Crown Prosecutor, conducted civil and commercial trials for high profile corporations and individuals, acted as Junior Counsel to Queens Counsel & Senior Counsel, and provided advice and opinions on a wide range of commercial, civil and criminal matters.
Murray has practiced across a wide range of legal areas in most Australian jurisdictions. He is someone who not only knows the law, but also understands from personal experience the challenges of working and living in the real world.
Prior to working as a lawyer, Murray managed, owned and worked in a number of successful businesses particularly in the hospitality & retail industries. Before that, Murray served with the New South Wales Police Service (General Duties and Police Rescue) and as a tour manager for Contiki (Europe). He continues to have business interests "outside the law" and serves on company boards as a director (legal counsel) and as company secretary mainly responsible for compliance and corporate governance issues.
Murray's experience in dispute management means he can give practical and strategic advice to help you minimise the risk of having a dispute in the first place. He will always look to reach winning compromises where possible, but his years of experience as a barrister mean that if the going gets tough, you're in the hands of a highly skilled advocate who will argue your case without a backward step. These traits, Murray now instils in his legal team.
Murray has earned a reputation as a highly skilled advisor and advocate, with a single-minded dedication to his clients and a pragmatic, no-fuss approach to meeting their needs.
Now at Bruce Legal , Murray ensures that his clients get more than just a lawyer. He offers his life-skills and business experience, as well as his legal acumen, to provide his clients with the best chance of the best result, whatever their situation.
Since speaking to you I have wanted to say thank you for your amazing efforts today but quite frankly I was absolutely speechless, for the first time in my life.
I know we are not at the end of the road yet but my faith in truth and justice has been restored and I can now see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
My sincere thanks
Thank you does not seem to adequately express my gratitude for what both of you achieved for me today. I am aware that we are not quite there yet but with your willingness to go to 'battle' for me time and time again to achieve the only result that I will accept, that being a fair and reasonable outcome, is awe- inspiring. My hope for a 'veritas aequitas' conclusion seems entirely possible now.
