David Skender



David joined Elisian after spending 7 years practising solely as a barrister at the Western Australian bar. Prior to joining the bar, David was a partner of a national firm and also held the position of Principal at a small boutique commercial law practice focusing on the areas of insolvency and commercial dispute resolution.

David’s experience includes advising clients across a broad range of industry sectors which include construction, property, accounting, mining, mining services, stockbroking and health care. In the insolvency area, David has acted for debtors, lenders and insolvency practitioners in a wide variety of insolvency and real and personal property securities law contexts.

Now practising as both a barrister and a solicitor, David is available to seamlessly advise and represent clients from the beginning to the end of the commercial dispute resolution process. This serves to eliminate the potential for duplication of work during the course of a matter. David’s understanding of the court system also provides an invaluable insight into the risks associated with litigation, appropriate strategies to minimise those risks and otherwise, how best to resolve a dispute commercially.
