Ian Malcolm Neil SC

A silk since 2006, Ian Neil works with leading law firms throughout Australia for clients in mining and resources, building and construction, banking and finance, industry, and government.

A focus of Ian’s practice is employment and industrial law.

He also appears frequently in commissions and inquiries, has a wide appellate, commercial, equity and administrative law practice in every jurisdiction in Australia, and appears in and conducts mediations and arbitrations in Australia, Hong Kong, and in the London Beth Din.

Ian is the author, with David Chin, of The Modern Contract of Employment, now the leading Australian text on the common law of employment. A second edition of this work is to be published in 2016.

Ian’s practice centres on written and oral advocacy. He teaches advocacy as a senior instructor with the Australian Advocacy Institute, and the Australian and NSW Bar Associations. He has been invited to teach advocacy throughout Australia, and in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

Ian’s commitment to the Bar as a profession means that he teaches and mentors new barristers, serves on the NSW Bar Association’s Duty Barrister Scheme, and regularly takes pro bono work through the Public Interest Lawyer’s Clearing House.
