  The Author
Frank is the author of the Commercial Contracts for Managers series of books.

He has worked in the private practice of law since 1986. Since 1996 he has worked with a number of multi-national corporations both in Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region.

As an international corporate lawyer, speaker and consultant, he has reviewed thousands of significant commercial agreements and has seen, first hand, the damage that organisations suffer when proper care is not exercised in negotiating and correctly documenting contract terms. He has also conducted and managed hundreds of millions of dollars of litigation caused by such lack of care.

Frank has been involved in a broad range of commercial transactions from the sale of international groups of companies to simple confidentiality agreements, and much else in between. He has also assisted organisations with:

  • mergers and acquisitions
  • post-merger integrations
  • corporate restructures
  • establishment of tender and bidding processes
  • crisis management planning
  • products recalls
  • contract management systems
  • legal audit and legal risk assessments
  • relations with external lawyers
  • planning corporate legal departments
  • roll-out or re-evaluation of insurance programmes;
  • company secretarial matters
  • compliance programs
  • in-house training programs for managers

His work experience as an in-house lawyer and risk manager extends to industries as diverse as:

  • Motorcycle manufacturing and motorcycle grand prix racing (125, 250 and 500 cc classes) for a world famous motorcycle company in Italy
  • Contract cleaning for the largest cleaning company in Australia
  • Facilities management
  • Asset services for a British multinational
  • Urban and remote area catering for the world's largest food services company
  • Electrical distribution and consumer goods businesses for a Dutch multinational, having represented well-known brands such as JVC, Polaroid, Minolta, Smeg, Blanco, Kenwood, JAG, Timex, Filofax, GE and Dimplex
  • IT distribution for the world's largest IT distributor

He is invited to speak at major industry forums in a number of countries on the topic of commercial contracts and on other legal and risk management areas.

In addition to his qualifications as a lawyer, Frank has an MBA and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators. He is also a Notary Public.
