Commercial Litigation Property Lawyers

Proud History, Bold Future, Since 1834

Chris Groves


I practise across a wide range of commercial and related disputes, with a focus on company and partnership disputes, insolvency law, building and construction disputes, trust disputes, property disputes and recovery actions. I regularly act for and against insolvency practitioners, developers and property owners, government bodies, large and small builders, shareholders and insurers.

I am an accredited building adjudicator under the Security of Payment legislation in Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland and I have adjudicated hundreds of construction payment disputes in this role since 2010. I have a reputation for strong commercial judgement and tailored problem solving and I regularly appear in many of Tasmania’s courts and tribunals.

Beyond work, I produce, review and perform music and enjoy spending time with my family.
